Overly Sensitive pad on keyboard

Got a new Dell Inspiron 15R in early January, and I am generally pleased with it, and am getting used to the Windows 8 on it, although I tend to go right to the desktop "app."  But here's the problem: 

The touchpad on the keyboard is way too sensitive.  When I am typing, which is mostly what I do on this machine, my thumbs hover over that pad, and frequently trigger it even though I don't touch it.  Must be the heat of my hand.  Is there any way to desensitize it or turn it off, short of throwing it against the wall?  I use a wireless mouse, which I prefer over that pad anyway.  I can't be the only one with this problem.  HELP!
