    Disabling Palmcheck on Windows 8


    Click image for larger version

    I just got a new laptop earlier today, and when I went to play a game, I discovered palmcheck. I've been looking for hours, and none of the solutions I've found have worked. I took a screenshot of my mouse settings window so you can see what I'm dealing with. I'm using a samsung notebook with a synaptics touchpad version 7.5. Can anyone help me disable palmcheck, please?

    I had the exact same problem with my Samsung, same settings screen. I solved it by downloading the drivers package directly from Synaptics website (NOT from Samsung). It's 110MB, which seems large, but unzip it, run set-up, restart your computer, and palm check will be in the settings.

    Synaptics_v16_3_15_1_C_XP32_Vista32_Win7-32_XP64_Vista64_Win7-64_Signed_Acme_Inc

    is the full name of the file (it's the first link on the drivers page of Synaptics website)
