Hi jturk

1) I would leave it alone you may need it at some point - Search HP US - Search results for 'gobi 2000' -
2) Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable
3) Date Format for Taskbar System Tray - Show Full Day and Month Names You need to use large taskbar icons I think - Taskbar - Use Small or Large Icons
4) If you not using the touchpad you can uninstall the divers for it see if that disables it.Or try disabling in "device manager"

Hope this helps
