In various forums, including this one, I've seen users post questions about the same problem. But none of the solutions works on my Gateway laptop PC with Windows 7 and Elan pointing device. Here's the problem: My mousepad clicks without my clicking it. It has sent e-mails I wasn't ready to send, it has closed windows I didn't want closed, it selects text i didn't select and -- most infuriating -- it creates new insertion points in Microsoft Word documents wherever the cursor happens to be hovering (it does this when I pause typing momentarily. When I resume typing, the text is inserted in the different place in the document, usually in the middle of an already-completed paragraph.) I've tried adjusting all the settings under "mouse properties." I've tried adusting folder options. I've confirmed that I'm not in "single-click" mode. I've confirmed the button "Activate a window by hovering over it with a mouse" is not clicked. I've checked for updates to the Elan Pointing Device driver. I've checked all the settings for the Elan device. Nothing works. Anyone have a solution for this that doesn't involve a blowtorch or an open window in a high-rise building?
