Windows 7: How can I adjust palm check sensitivity on mousepad?

How can I adjust palm check sensitivity on mousepad?

I recently reinstalled Windows 7 on my laptop. Prior to formatting, the mouse was working PERFECTLY. After formatting, the mouse is acting much differently. I am using the Synaptics software just as I was before I reinstalled Windows 7, and the mouse pad is MUCH more sensitive than it used to be when my palm hits it. If I type anything in the QWERTY row, my palm never fails to tap the mousepad and it screws everything up (you know how it goes).

I've gone into the Synaptics settings and changed palm check sensitivity and everything else on there that I think would help, and nothing does. Is this a Windows 7 issue? Does anyone have any suggestions on it?

go into control panel and fine mouse and pointer options.

you can adjust the sensitivity there, as well as slow down the double tap guesture, which might be cause the problem

I think the only way to do this is to go into Synaptics settings and adjust the "palm check" settings. But I've tried that and it seems to have no effect.
