Did you try downloading the Touchpad On/Off Utility ?
Maybe touchpad sensitivity and/or click disabling will be involved with that??

The setting isn't obvious to find, but it's there.
But to be clear. It's NOT part of the default mouse properties screen. You have to go to the settings of the device itself. Sorry, I didn't take screen-shots.

I have to wonder though, Jules52, being as how your other issues with the updates magically resolved themselves, perhaps a fresh uninstall and reinstall of synaptics will also fix this problem? Worth a try I would think.

I have a solution but first let me vent. This problem was absolutely the most frustrating and stupid problem. Why would anyone who knows how to type want the to tap to click??? It is such a frustrating feature. On top of that, why would anyone developing software not give the user the ability to turn it off?? Synaptics old touchpad drivers for XP were 100 times better. I don't understand the lack of functionality in the new ones.
I checked on Toshiba.com for touchpad drivers for my A205-S5831 satellite and noticed there was an Alps driver. I downloaded this driver, uninstalled the Synaptics driver, and installed the Alps driver. The Alps driver includes many more options the Synaptics driver does not, including turning off tap to click. Hope this solution works for others.

Toshiba Equium laptop. Windows Vista.
Today, In my C drive I found Toshiba/drivers/touchpad and in this a folder for the Alps driver. Running the progam DPInst in this folder installed the Alps Touchpad. Right-click on the notification area touchpad icon, select Control Panel, Advanced, Advanced Feature Settings, Pointer Speed and Tapping Settings, uncheck enable tapping. At last after 6 months I have finally removed the very annoying tap to click! All that remains now is for me to retrain myself to stop tapping! The great news is that I will no longer be involuntarily opening all sorts of programs, menu commands etc by mistake, causing me no end of problems and annoyance.

Check your System Tray too. (the little row of icons in the lower right corner of your screen)
Synaptics Logo looks like this:
(the red one)
after you go to the icon on the lower right you need to right click over the icon using a mouce then go to the drop dwn and click on the tap to click. its that simple

Sentelic main site is here, but I wasn't able to get the downloads.
From MSI I used the driver for their CR600 series laptop, here:
Hope this works you guys!

I had to use the "Elantech Touchpad Driver" which I found on the Asus support site here:
Specifically, the version I used was V188.8.131.52 and now it supports 1, 2, and even 3 finger gestures and disabling the "Touch to Click" feature.
My device is now listed as "ELAN PS/2 Port Smart Pad" in Device Manager.
