    Win 8.1 has made my touchpad oversensitive in start menu


    Hi, I'm a new user, so I can't post a new thread. I hope you'll answer here.
    I bought a ASUS K450jf last week, with windows 8, and last night I updated it to windows 8.1.
    And I already started having a little problem with it, that i'm not enjoying.
    I the start panel, the touchpad has a oversensitivity that is completely annoying. I'm just moving the cursor from one side to the other and it opens up the app in which i lift my fingers from the touchpad, or even completely random apps, with more incidence in the xbox music thing or the bing news.
    Is anyone else having this problem? And how can I fix it?

    I had the touchpad on my laptop get wonky for no apparent reason. It was more jittery than anything else. I un installed and then reinstalled the drivers and smart gesture utility and it was fine again.
