    I have tried to change the pad settings but I guess my laptop does not have that type of control. I found the pad properties in devices and printers but there was no tab for controlling settings. I guess I will have to disable it. Thanks.

    ASUS has a separate area called Smart Gestures that controls these settings so far I have not had the charm pop up since making some changes, thanks again to all for the help.
