Hi George, try to uninstall the dell touchpad driver if is available, go to the device manager and look for it, if is not installed, try a clean Windows OS reinstallation and if still the same issue, the touchpad must be replaced. Regards

Thxs Victor, I found Dell Touchpad under "Mice and other pointing devices." Must I just uninstall

and not try and reinstall afterwards?

Is a clean Windows OS reinstallation ann repair installation?

Sorry for the trouble, but I need to make sure of my actions.

Have a great weekend. Regards

George

Hi George, tru to uninstall it, the dell touchpad is not from dell, actually windows generate it for the system, but a touchpad doesnt require a driver for working, if still the same issue after uninstalling it, porceed to delete it. After that the only software related option is a Windows Clean Reinstallation. If still the same issue the touchpad is having hardware issues. Regards,

Since I installed TouchFreeze 1.0 I had very little problems and it is not interfering with other programs.
