When I installed my Bamboo tablet in Windows 7/8, a ring shows anytime I click with the pen. Which annoys me.
There's a new option. Wacom recenly (June 2013) released a new driver: Version 6.3.6-w3
The new driver seems to completely disable the pen rings and works in both Windows 7 and Windows 8 - I've tried it on 3 Windows 8 machine and 2 Windows 7 machines and can confirm its behavior on Intuos 4 and Intuos 5 tablets.
To use the new Driver:
- Install the Driver (you will be asked to reboot if you already have a previous driver)
- From the Start Menu or the Control Panel go to Wacom Tablet Properties
- For Tablet, select your tablet device
- For Tools, select your pen
- For Application, select All
- Then select the Mapping tab
- At the bottom left of the Mapping tab, uncheck Use Windows Ink
- Close Wacom Tablet Properties
- You are done - you should see no more dynamic feedback/ripples or other effects such as drag-delay or press-and-hold

I have found the solution:
Open Local Group Policy Editor. It is quite hidden - search for it in Windows Start menu or in Control panel - use the search box as I have not found the shortcut for it. Alternatively you can run
gpeditfrom command line (not from Run in Start menu).
Navigate to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Tablet PC - Cursor.
Enable the Turn off pen feedback setting.
My current solution is to install old drivers: DRIVER 5.24-6 RC FOR WINDOWS 7, VISTA (32 AND 64 BIT) AND XP
The instructions involving the Group Policy Editor will work for Windows Professional and Ultimate. But it doesn't work on Windows 7 Home Premium - because Home Premium doesn't have a Group Policy Editor.
Essentially you'll need to modify the registry to disable the rings. There's a REG file at the bottom at the link below that will do this for you
