Been a while since I last used my Asus EeePC 1011PX for serious typing. And so it came as something of a surprise that despite the latest Elantech touchpad drivers being installed, the touchpad *still* was being accidentally activated while typing.

So, out went the driver – it simply didn’t function in Windows 8.  Perhaps it doesn’t really support my particular hardware, or perhaps it’s an OS problem.  Either way, it was a whole lotta software for not a lot of function.

Instead, I’ve installed Touchfreeze from the Google Code project.  Left as installed, in automatic mode, it seems to be doing the job just fine, and I can carry on typing huge reams into OneNote 2010 with ease!
