    Windows 7 or windows 8 on another machine?
    If Windows 7, I think the driver for your egalax machine just isn't configured to communicate the touch as anything other than mouse strokes. Bummer.

    MS doesn't make drivers for hardware from other companies. If you haven't checked on the touch manufacturer's page yet for the latest driver to install, it would be a good idea to do that.

    A quick eGalax search brings me to this driver:

    eGalax_eMPIA Technology Inc. TouchKit Windows 7 Driver

    on this page:

    EETI eGalax Touch

    Ok I think you are having the same issue I was having. After a bit of googling I have found an answer that allows the touch screen to work correctly (again I believe). Uninstall all drivers that you installed restart then down load and install this one from the archos site: ftp://support.archos.com/Archos%209/...00115_Beta.zip

    I now can drag the screen etc on the metro interface without it acting like a mouse. If this does not work for you I am sorry, I just wanted to pass on what had found to ease my pain I was having!
