Default Touch Pad trigger Intenet Explorer (win)

Took me awhile to figure this one out. It seemed like random key strokes were launching Internet Explorer. Google searches led to solutions like running root kit cleaners, or immediately returning the computer to the seller.

Then I wondered if it was my palms touching the touch pad. So searched that way, and found a message about turning off three finger gestures to get it to stop.

That worked. But it still bothered me. Why would this be application-specific? Could it be a touch pad driver virus?

Turns out the touch can be configured to launch a specific program.


I'm glad now that I didn't try to solve this by redoing my new computer from the recover DVD.
