I bought a Dell laptop over a year ago, happy with it, haven't had any issues and I got the free upgrade to Vista Home Premium. My only annoyance, and I've simply put up with it, is tapping/touching the touchpad will move my cursor, select things, etc. I know it's a "feature" but I always accidently hit the touchpad and it'll click things I don't want click, put the cursor in the middle of a sentence when I'm typing, all kinds of annoying things. I simply want to disable the ability to tap the pad to select things, I'd rather the only be to do that with the buttons.
I've searched all through Vista and I can't come up with an option anywhere. Maybe I've somehow overlooked it. Previous to upgrading I had a task bar icon that had information on the touchpad and the ability to change different things. Is this something I need to have to change the settings, etc? I upgraded not long after having the laptop so I'm afraid I don't know much about it.
