my first time here, so I hope you can help. I've seen a lot of stuff on various forums (including here) about disabling the annoying "tap" function on a laptop touchpad. I learned the hard way not to uninstall the driver (as the software suggests), since you then lose the Synaptic tab in the mouse control settings, and with it all means to modify the touchpad settings ... incidentally, if this happens to you, reboot in safe mode and do a restore, and the Synaptic tab comes back. Not ideal, I know, but it works.
Anyway, I have the most up-to-date drivers, and I can go to the Synaptics tab and can disable the tap-to-click function no problem. However, next time the machine is booted, tap-to-click is back on. It can always be disabled, but it's a pain having to reset it every time the machine is powered up.
Is there a way to permanently disable it, once and for all?
