I purchased a hp envy 4 ultrabook. Its great but I'm infuriated at the touchpad. The click buttons and the touch pad are combined together but the click button area is touch sensitive. I usually rest my thumb on the right click but the mouse cursor goes completely crazy on this machine.

Is there any way to disable a section of the touchpad? Basically make the click button area have nothing to do with the pointer function.

I did see this post: Disable touch pad for mouse button region on new HP pavillion models?

but the solution presented in that only limited the area from which the touchpad can begin. Since I rest my thumb on the click buttons, I would like to completely disable the click button area of the touchpad.

Thank you.

I don't think this is possible the way you describe it. You may just have to learn new behaviour, or use a mouse. –  user3463 Sep 13 '12 at 3:46

Can you put a Post-IT note over it? –  dangowans Sep 22 '12 at 17:30
