I use a tablet PC and I use the touch screen for navigating, so I would like to permanently disable the touchpad on the laptop. I've tried a few things but nothing seems to work.
I've tried uninstalling and disabling the driver, uninstalling caused it to be reinstalled on reboot, and windows 7 won't let me disable it from device manager. I also tried a couple apps that disable the pad while typing, but I want to disable it permanently, not just while typing.
The laptop in an HP TouchSmart tm2.
Any ideas on how else I can disable the touchpad? I can provide more info if necessary.
