Try this:

Click Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse

Then click on the tab that is all the way to the right. Then let me know what the name of that tab is.

Thanks for this....unfortunately me and my Toshiba are 70 miles apart. I will have to get back to you.

 

Is that OK?

I looked it up, and I believe your touchpad should be a Synaptics. The link below has the instructions for disabling the touchpad:
