I'd like to point out a great feature that this fellow right here suggested. PalmCheck
solved this exact same issue on my former Acer notebook.
Have you had a go at this feature?

Hit "settings" there and expand "pointers" then "sensitivity" and adjust from there. There are other settings in there that will help you with your problem too. Look around a little and read some of the settings. I don't have my system here or I would tell you about those too.
There is one called "palm check" or something. I think that will help too.
Edit: I should have read the previous posts. It looks like you already got the basics covered.
Whoops. Didn't realize the opening post was quite old :P
Anyway, to the users experiencing this problem, this feature is probably the most suitable solution.
