If you're trying to disable the Touch Screen because of Ghost Touch, and the ghost touch is so bad that it doesn't allow you to use the mouse & keyboard properly, then there is another way, but your webcam will also be disabled.
Turn on the PC and keep tapping F10. Go to the Security tab and USB Ports. DISABLE the INTERNAL USB ports. This will disable the touch screen & webcam.
This will at least allow you to use the PC until you can arrange to get the touch screen fixed or your data off etc..
