    It installed, but none of the settings options changed. Still can't disable it.

    From the screenshots in my post above, it appears that you can only adjust the sensitivity. If you have not already, you might try different sensitivity levels to see if it one may work better.

    That's the problem. There is no option for PalmCheck anything. This is all I see:

    The version I downloaded from the Vizio site was the same one Windows updater had already installed. 16.5.2

    Unfortunately, the PalmCheck sensitivity settings are only in the newer version.

    As a test, enable the built-in Administrator, sign in to it, uninstall the old driver, and see if the newer driver may be able to successfully install.

    I'm bumping this thread because I still can't resolve this. I was told by Vizio support that they use proprietary software provided by Microsoft for their touchapds, and that is impossible for me to disable this without completely uninstalling the driver and losing the ability to use the scroll gesture and right click. Is there any type of 3rd party touchpad driver out there that gives me these features?

    That's to bad. Drivers are device specific, so there wouldn't usually be any 3rd party ones available.

    About all you can do for now is to keep pestering Vizio to update their drivers to allow you to be able to.
