mouse pad malfunction

  Amalric III 12:15 16 Sep 2008

1) On my new Asus E1000H, if my thumb approaches the mouse pad to anywhere within 5 centimeters, the cursor is flicked to somewhere else on the screen. I would prefer to disable the pad entirely. How can I do this?
2) some programs take an entire a line on the screen, which is very small already. Is there a way to delete these lines?
