For those of you who use a laptop or netbook for day to day use, Here is a simple utility that can fix a small problem that everyone of you face. Often when we are typing, some part of our palm or finger touches the Touchpad which results in mouse moving  somewhere else resulting in errors while typing. Touchfreeze is a small utility which automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text.

Developer’s Description:

Annoyed when you are typing a document and accidentally the palm of your hand brushes the touchpad, changing the position of the cursor in your document or accidentally clicking on an option. TouchFreeze is simple utility for Windows NT/2000/XP that solves this problem. It automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text. Like syndaemon on x-windows.

The installer is a small ~250 KB MSI installer which you need to install on your laptop  or netbook. It installs on your system and while running , it resides in your system tray. You can enable or disable the option of its startup when Windows boot just by right clicking on its tray Icon. It does not provide any other option to adjust.

As this utility is still being developed, so there are few issues with it too which may be fixed in next release. e.g it doesn’t work with laptops which have Synaptic Touchpad devices on Windows 7, many HP laptops.
