    I am unable to disable the tapping feature on my touchpad. I am using Vista Home premium. I know how to disable the touchpad completely but I donot wish to use a mouse. When I go into Device Manager for Mouse and pointing devices it shows only a PS2 mouse of which I have none connected. Can anyone help

    Look in control panel for synaptic touchpad.
    The settings would be there.
    If it is not there,you probably need to download the
    software from the manufacturer.
    Might also be under mouse properties in control panel.

    In answer to leroys1000. There is no mention anywhere on the computer about a Synaptic touchpad. Nothing in Device manager. Not mentioned under mouse properties. No touchpad listed in the instructions.

    Thanks for the info, will try it when I get the chance. The problem is on my wife's laptop. I have downloaded the driver from Uniwill but haven't had chance to try it yet.
