Windows 7: built in mouse conflicts with external mouse

built in mouse conflicts with external mouse

I probably spilled some coffee on the keyboard and now I can not inactivate the mouse pad in favor of the external mouse. The only way I can eliminate the conflict is to uninstall the mouse pad. That works fine but every time I reboot for something I have to uninstall it again. As you know rebooting is common and therefore I have to reboot twice for every time I have to reboot. Anyone with a solution to this problem? This is a HP laptop. The mouse automatically installs everytime I have to reboot. I do not shut down normaly. Just close the lid. But there are enough times that this problem is annoying.

Drink milk I guess.

Whjat about disabling the trackpad in device manager? Disabled devices wont re-load drivers.
