You might see if yours has a sensitivity adjustment. Check your owner's manual.

Not hardly. A mouse will fit in most notebook cases, and is vastly easier to use than a touchpad, IF you have a suitable surface to use it on. And fortunately, with blue lasers, that can be a carpet, arm of a chair, or even a pant leg.
I could disable the touchpad but that just defeats the purpose of having a laptop
but its def not me
That sure sounds like you, no? So if you keep accidentally brushing the touchpad and it shoots off then you either need to make it less sensitive (if possible) or retrain you so your habit is to hold your hands up and stop brushing the pad.
My problem is 'Tapping' when I am doing anything on it and I even brush the touchpad it shoots off and opens something else or the cursor will relocate
Did you check your manual for sensitivity settings?

Ridicule? Don't be so sensitive. We know absolutely nothing about you and your skillset. After all, I confessed upfront I had a similar problem that I was unable to resolve through any settings in Control Panel or my notebook's hardware settings.
Thanks for your feed back, kinda thought that this forum was to help and not ridicule.
Sorry if was unable to give you a solution you like.
Clearly if you are brushing the touchpad, with finger or shirtsleeve, and it tosses your cursor across the page, and there is no sensitivity setting, then YOU have to change, just as I did by reverting to using a mouse.

This is exactly why I like PCs and dislike notebooks. PCs have the ATX Form Factor standard the requires all ATX motherboards, ATX cases, ATX power supplies to fit, connect, and work with each other and to support "standard" PCI, PCIe, USB, and SATA add-ons and peripherals. So if you don't like your graphics solution, for example, you can replace it with one from a multitude of makers providing a multitude of models, and know it will work.
Is it possible to download a compatible driver that will give me the capability to change settings?
But with notebooks, there is no ATX standard. So notebook makers use and do whatever they want in their quest to make the thinnest and lightest notebook. Therefore, notebooks are very proprietary, and that's bad. While several notebook makers may use the same touchpad, graphics solution, or sound, they often "tweak" the device and/or the driver to fit that notebook.
So what I am saying is, if Advent does not have a newer driver, and your touchpad's control panel options do not allow any adjustments to sensitivity, then I see no other options for you. Sorry I could not help further. Perhaps someone else reading can.
If you do find a solution, please post it back here.

Speaking of Windows, you said you looked everywhere for a sensitivity setting, perhaps I should not have assumed - did you check sensitivity settings in Control Panel? Note that even for the touchpad, these are located under "Mouse".
In Windows 7, go to Control Panel > Mouse > the "Device Settings" tab > "Settings..." button > Pointing > Sensitivity > Touch Sensitivity
Further down in Settings are the Tapping functions. You might play with them too.
(Depending on your version of Windows and how you view your Control Panel, the navigation to the sensitivity settings may be slightly different - but they should still be under Mouse somewhere)
