    You could try disabling or uninstalling the ESET smart security and use Windows Defender for security, mostly these third party security programs create problems in Windows 8.

    thanks! i'll keep that in mind brummyfan.

    now back to my problem with the touchpad.
    how can I lock it out so I don't have to deal with it again.

    seriously, i am a writer and i do not want this awful distraction and time waster of constantly retyping ....
    typing all this is horrible torture using this machine!

    i am listening and paying attention to your troubleshooting carefully and with respect
    i hope you are listening to me

    I have found a newer driver, uninstall the current driver from Programs and features, reboot and install this driver and see whether it helps ( hope you have uninstalled ESET, at least temporarily).

    o this is just the same//// look at the date on this /// 25/3/13 /// been there done that which is why I am here dear brummyfan.


    well go ahead and force me off the forum then... you don't want to honestly answer my question! instead run me in circles.
    I came here asking for help on how to fully disable the touchpad and you want it to work instead.
    I won't be a bother any further.
    have a great day

    You need to be patient to resolve a problem, believe me, I'm trying my best to help you, the touchpad you got came with the laptop and you need to make it work better for you, you can remove it by uninstalling if you want, then OS will install the generic drivers and you will end up with less functionality. Anyone else with your make of laptop might help you or you could also try a dell community, Good luck.
