  • I didn't know you could turn those off? I never use the stupid pad... I have a mouse connected to mine! LOL.. Did you try troubleshooting at the Dell site?

  • You would have to go threw the registry.
    You can go to start-run-regedit and look for browse and look for mouse. I don't exactly what tree. I think its Hts-user. google it...good luck!!
