I didn't have any disable options on my G72 running Windows 7. I ended up uninstalling, then the disable option showed up.
1. Control Panel
2. Device Manager
3. Mice and other Pointing Devices
4. Right-click on PS/2 compatible mouse
6. Control Panel
7. Device Manager
8. Mice and other Pointing Devices
9. Right-click on PS/2 compatible mouse
If you just uninstall, the touchpad starts working after next shutdown, so you need to do the disable too.
After I did this I thought maybe I should try the download new driver thing. Disaster for me, I couldn't disable and the above didn't work anymore either. I ended up moving the downloaded driver to my recycle bin before doing the above to prevent the new one from reinstalling every time I rebooted.
Please "Kudos" this post if it helps you out. Thanks.

None of the above worked for me can't get touch pad off by any program solutions. tried them all. Get a roll of aluminum duct tape (comes in black also) TAPE OVER THE ENTIRE TOUCHPAD NEATLY. TOTALLY DISABLED. WORKS ON ANY LAPTOP. Peel off to turn on again. Sometimes the simplest soloutin is the best and easiest. I have used a small laptop size optical mouse (about $4.) to replace the often mis-directed touchpad on all my laptops from day 1.
