Dell inspiron1501 touch pad sensitivity problem

\015 When i bought my dell inspiron 1501, I set the touch pad up so it only clicked when using the buttons not the actual pad, today with no warning, the pad had again enabled itself so i find myself clicking on stuff accidentlywhen moving the pointer, and i have just noticed the task bar's touchpad icon is no longer there? and come to think of it, i dont remember seeing it for some time.. what is causing the first problem and how do i get the icon back so i can change the settings back?\015

Answers :

You are going to have to go into the control panel and to the mouse properties. in there you will be able to put the icon back in the taskbar. i dont know why it changed itself though. on my dell a couple times i had to reinstall the mouse drivers for some reason. i just went to dell.com and got them there. hope this helps
