Hi Jimmy, I too was getting your attachment but its name ending caused my Avast to delete it before I could open it. I have checked my laptop and each manufacturer must do it differently. My touchpad folder is in c:\swsetup. When I ran setup.exe I was not offered any option to disable the touchpad only to install the driver again. So I looked in controlpanel instead and under mouse I was offered a disable button when I tabbed over to the hardware heading. This button is now set to "enable" for the future. This seems the best way to disable the touchpad unless a sighted person is going to help you in the future.
