Windows 7: Mouse cursor opens everything without clicking - just by hovering

Is there a setting "disable touchpad when mouse installed?". When you plug in a USB mouse the touchpad is disabled. The main danger is if you reboot with the USB mouse plugged in. The touchpad may not come on even if the mouse is not connected. So make a restore point before changing the setting.

edit: I'm thinking the touchpad might be picking up some vibration or other weird thing.

Hello!

No mouse-related software - and seemingly not a hardware issue. I did call Lenovo and they remotely looked at the computer and did a BIOS update. Too soon to close the book, but things have (knocking wood) been much improved. Will post back after a few days to give an update.

Thanks to all for the help!

And no - I don't see that setting. I agree - that if the touchpad is not ever re-enabled, that could also be an issue. I am reserving judgement for a few more days to see if the BIOS update worked.

Thanks!

This is what you need to do only, Go to the mouse setting and disable TAPPING ZONES, simple as can be, no safe mode or hardware problems, jus TAPPING ZONE is enables,

Windows 7 I ran the Sfc /scannow and I show no problems All I have to do is move the mouse and all kinds of windows start opening. It appears to me that the opening software is not related to where the mouse cursor is located. I can access the command line.
