on my Acer laptop. I've uninstalled the touchpad under device manager, but it still works! It is extremely distracting when I'm trying to type (I'm a writer) as it moves my cursor several paragraphs from where I'm working, and will delete things, etc., because my thumb brushes it. I NEVER use the touchpad - I hate them, and I want this thing to stop working. How is it even working when I've uninstalled it, supposedly? Please help!

Likely a keyboard shortcut to disable it as well, but you would probably need to re-install the driver for that. Check the manual.

If you really don't like it, you could always open the laptop and unplug it.

Okay apparently I'm really stupid because I can't get the photo to post here. But the touchpad on this is completely flat - there's no buttons or indentation or anything on it anywhere. I'm kind of a luddite when it comes to technology, even simple stuff.
