Trying to disable tap to touch after windows 7 installation.


Yes without that original Synaptics software disabling tap to touch will be next to impossible. Try this Win7 Driver to see if that fixes you up.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
