Guys I apologize, I forget that you don't know I went through this process with HP customer support, and partially in another thread here. Here is the full story below, some information repeated.
I originally did not have the option to disable my driver(I went to mouse in my control panel, no option was listed). When I went to this site it was recommended I download a driver from the HP site. When I did this the option to disable appeared. It worked for a day or two, then stopped listening to the disable option. I uninstalled the new driver, then uninstalled the old driver and the touchpad was disabled for a little while. This hotkey situation appeared a week later(touchpad and buttons attached act as hotkeys for my keyboard every time I touch them).
When I uninstall my touchpad driver I am forced into a restart, and upon restart I am shown a black screen with the words no mouse found(or something similar), I press no buttons and when the laptop is fully restarted, then either the hotkey situation as mentioned in my previous post appears, or hysterically the touchpad still has use of the mouse. Now when I go back to the control panel and look at the mouse(or device manager) I see that the "PS/2 Compatible Mouse
" <--(the touchpad driver)is still there.
I know it might seem initially like an easy fix, but I have posted this on two forums with still no help. I said it before and I will say it again.......Something is prompting that reinstall and I think the best bet is to find out what it is and delete that so I no longer receive the prompt. Something is scanning for the touchpad driver and I want to disable that too.
