    How to make changes in Device Manager permanent

    I have a touchscreen laptop which recently acquired a crack. Near this crack there will often be "ghost clicks". To try and stop this problem I disabled the HID compliant touch screen in Device manager. It worked. However the next day the touchscreen had re-enabled itself, and the ghost clicks were back. A few days later I disabled the touch screen again. I then turned my computer off and on again and restarted it and the touchscreen was still disabled. However it was again re-enabled the next day. Does anyone know why it keeps re-enabling itself and how to stop it? Note that I am not admin and that I needed the administrator of my computer to type in his password each time I want to disable the touchscreen.

    Are you simply disabling the touchscreen or are you actually uninstalling the device? You might try actually uninstalling it. Also, when you right-click on the Touchscreen device in Device Manager and choose the option to uninstall it, is there also an option to remove the driver from the system? If so, try actually uninstalling and removing the driver rather than just disabling it.

    If the device still comes back, then try running the Microsoft Show or Hide Updates Troubleshooter tool (link below) and choose not to allow the touchscreen driver to be reinstalled (if it gives you that option).
