Cannot Disable touchpad RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 10, HP laptop

    I cannot find the best forum for this question.

    I cannot keep my fingers off the touchpad, and cannot uninstall it.  Here are the steps I have taken. Please advise as to what I should do differently.

    Hold down the Windows key and press X

    Click Device Manager

    Open item Mouse and other pointing devices to reveal: ELAN Clickpad

    Click on ELAN Clickpad and select tab Driver

    Click button Uninstall Device

    At the warning dialog, enable the checkbox: Delete the driver software for this device

    Click Uninstall

    A progress bar is displayed and completes.  A new dialog is presented stating:

    To finish removing the device you must restart your computer.

    Do you want to restart your computer now.

    Save this file and Select Yes.

    The laptop shuts down and restarts.

    After restart, drag my finger across the touchpad. The mouse follows my finger.  The driver has not been uninstalled.

    Turn the computer OFF and restart.  Same results.

    Repeat at least three times.  Same results.

    How can I disable this touchpad?
