My wife hates the touchpad on her Acer Aspire 5610Z laptop running Windows 7. Her palms brush the touchpad with predictable results. She uses a USB mouse and has a folded envelope taped over the touchpad to prevent her palms from contacting it. I looked in the Device Manager for a way to disable the touchpad entirely, but didn't see anything. Any ideas?
