i have a synaptics touchpad under Windows 7.

Product Name: HP Notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My HP notebook was Windows 10 and was downgraded to Windows 7.   My touchpad is too touchy and I continuously find that it moves around the screen while i am typing.  I thought that I would just disable it.  It shows up on the hardware as a mouse PS2 and it does not have a disable button.  I just deleted the install file but it constantly re-loads on a re-boot.  I love my HP notebook, but the touchpad is driving me crazy, please help me.

Hi:

 

Use the W10 touchpad driver from your notebook's support page.

 

It also has the drivers for W8.1 and W7.

 

That would be the only suggestion I can offer.
