    I don't know if we can uninstall touchpad drivers, but I'd be careful doing that if we can.

    Yes, the Synaptic pointing drivers are the touchpad; however, I'm pretty sure there would be different ones for different laptops. So I wouldn't go installing the first one I came across.

    Back around Build 9926 or so, I could see both my mouse and touchpad drivers. All I had to do was go into touchpad properties and tell it to disable itself if it found a mouse present. Not so now!

    This time, I had to unplug the dongle for the wireless mouse before Build 10074 would show me the touchpad. Once there, the only thing available was to disable the touchpad. Of course, then, it wouldn't work, so I had to plug the dongle back in. Duh!

    I'm not sure what the difference is, but so far, that's what I've seen. I have a couple more laptops I need to check out for the same problems before moving on from this one.
    Thanks Wynona; If Synaptic pointing drivers are for the touch-pad,and i don't have touch pad why can't i uninstall it ?anybody here that knows this please advise.

    It is annoying to have to use the UAC. It can be adjusted down but why be concerned with something that you have no control over. If you turn it off some things will not work.

    Now that is strange indeed! So you're saying your desktop has synaptic pointing drivers installed?

    That's probably why I go through Stop and Giveway signs, I invariably start ignoring them, so they serve absolutely serve no purpose.
    Poor analogy.

    Are people that are getting constant UAC prompts getting them from win 10 or is this based on your last OS?

    I have mine just set to the default and it is very rare I see it come up (occasionally if installing s/w), could probably count on my fingers the number of times its popped up this year so far (this is win 8.1)
    I'm the same it very rarely pops up, years ago yeah it used to come up quite often but not now. Unfortunately that few times is too much for some people, like clicking to go the desktop from the Start screen.

    I run my computers as a Standard User and have a separate Admin account. I'm always seeing popups for admin permission when installing software, making changes, etc. That's okay. It makes for a more secure computer.

    That's one of the things that also makes Linux so secure, the difference being though, one(a normal user, a non-geek)has no choice which I find good.
    After installing everything(Windows & 3rd party software) the first time and transferring my personal files, I create a 2nd admin account only, no cloning the account or files programs and such, I just create the account then change mine to standard, and when I want to make changes to the system I'm going to have to give a password. This has saved my butt a few times, because either I must pause and think about what I'm doing, or it kept me from making a mistake(my fingers are sometimes faster than my brain).

    Actually, most Linux systems allow you to run as root or log-in as root or can be modified to log-in as root.
