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.

I appreciate the this tool. I have been trying to find something to fix this problem for years. I am confused why the programmers of Microsoft did not do this. It is annoying to have the mouse move every time you--especially long term papers for school. At first I thought it was me and try everything to prevent the mouse movement but nothing work. I am grateful to be able to text my papers for school and not worry about the mouse putting letters in the wrong place.

Thanks a lot, have had you for many years & all has worked well. Recently messed w/registry keys as suggested by Microsoft to get rid of Avast. Well it got rid of my whole system, have worked to get it back. Now my Google Chrome is changing page sizes at will and it will NOT even let me report this problem. Automatically goes off page to report problem. Can you add Google Chrome to monitor them doing changes. I didn't pick that. Do you think it would help? Have 8.1 Operating System.
Thank you Again. Judy. Just downloaded you latest "Touch Freeze" 9/3/2018.

Judy Mason, I found your Touch Free at the bottom of my favorites. It is not in my programs at all. So am going to try to download it again. The manager is here that is all. My pages & fonts are still going wild from huge to tiny. Have had your program before & all worked great.
