    Asus UL80JT-A1 touchpad reacts when barely tapped (i.e., during typing). Was not a problem prior to updating all drivers on system fro mfr site - and "possibly" installing some that I did not need. Cannot find any configuration in Control Panel even when I go to Mouse. Any ideas, please?

    Thank you.

    I think/speculate that it is the result of the way you type which somehow, without you realizing it, touches the touchpad which is a bit too sensitive.

    My suggestion is to decrease the size of tapping area in your touchpad.
    It is by no means a solution. Just a suggestion.

    I can only illustrate what I could do with my Acer 7741 laptop.

    Whether it applies to your Asus, I don't know.

    Control Panel > Mouse > Device settings > under Devices, select Settings > left side, expand Tapping > click Tap Zones > check the box "Enable Tap Zones" > expand Tap Zones > select Tap Zone Sizes >
    To decrease the area of tapping zone, move the 4 square boxes and make them larger.

    before adjusting the tapping zone............

    Hope that can help a little.

    Nothing in Control Panel indicating something like "Alps" or "Synaptic"
    Typically if you install the manufacturer's driver package it will add a new applet to the control panel.

    Awesome. These two posts helped me piece together the solution. Installed a new driver for the touchpad and now able to set the configuration for a less sensitive touchpad. Thanks again.
