It allows you to disable the touchpad of your laptop while typing
4.0  (12 votes)

This is a very small but useful application that allows you to disable the touchpad of your laptop while typing. The program doesn't need configuration, it automatically detects when you are typing and disables the touchpad momentarily in order to avoid changing the position of the cursor, changing to another window or executing any unwanted action while typing and sliding your hand accidentally on the touchpad surface. The installation procedure is very simple, you only have to execute the downloaded file, accept to run the program in the security warning window, and accept to install the program on the selected folder or browse to select another one on the wizard setup. After installing the program, there will appear its icon in the system tray, by right-clicking on the icon you can load/unload TouchFreeze at system startup and exit the program. The program only requires 100kb of free space on the disk and 3Mb of RAM. The operating systems supported are: Microsoft Windows NT, 2000 and XP.

Kim Why does this company have a website that only has a place to donate? They are not excepting my credit card. It says it's free, but after a few months I had to download it again.

Ann Touchfreeze does not always work for me. In particular, as I am typing my password when I am logging in. Sometimes I have a very difficult time logging in because of this.

My curser just jumped and I had to come back and fix it. What I also get is that the screen jumps. Suddenly the area I am using isn't there anymore so I have a two pronged problem.
