i had some trouble with my computer. got some Qhost virus and got rid of that(i think) now my touchpad settings won;t stay. If I reboot the settings automatically go to tapping and i hate that. I have to change it everytime. Drives me carzy. who knows what else is screwed uo but that is my main problem. This has happened before but I can't remember what I had to do to get it to stop. I do not want tapping.thanks to anyone.

Running an online virus scanner to make sure the virus is gone would be a good idea.

Try a search on your model of computer and look how to "reset touchpad to default settings". Make sure you're logged in as the administrator to make changes.

Also check in the device manager and see if the driver may have become corrupt. If so, you can replace it.

I have done the virus scan am I am coming up clean. It may be the driver. I ran my hijckthis and by mistake deleted the list that came up but had a backup. I had to replace my keyboard driver so you are probably right. Thanks

I'd recommend hunting for the proper driver first. Let us know if that works.
