The button for "Disable" a driver in Device Manager is disable

Hello all,

I have a Windows 7 enterprise computer in a Windows domine, the problem is that I'm trying to disable the touchpad mouse of my computer but when I go to Device manager and see the properties of the Mouse Driver the button "Disable" is disable, I think that is something with domain politics and I can enable the button modifying regedit but I am not shoure of this and I do not what key of the regedit I would have to modify.
I add a photo so you can se what is the problem becose my english is not Good.

Thank you all.

Welcome to the Seven Forums David!

I see the same thing on a W7 Pro laptop - the same button that you have highlighted is disabled.

Try this:
Start > Control Panel
In the upper right corner, change "View by:" to small icons or large icons
Locate and click on "Mouse"

See if you can disable the touch pad from there.

You right, this button is disable by default, I check in a diferent computer and I see the same thing. so, how can I disable the touchpad mouse if there is not an option for do that in the Mouse Settings.

you seem to be using driver version 15.0.24.0
try updating to the driver to version 15.2.20
others have reported that you can disable the touchpad n that version

I have the solution.

I just download the Mouse Driver from Toshiba Web page (Ultra Nav) and that driver add me a new tab in the propeties of the mouse and now I can Enable or Disable the Touchpad Mouse.

Thank you all.
