I have but can't find a way to disable for all users.  

The lap-top will be shared by potentially many different user accounts and I would like to disable for all.

Did you try a hardware profile - set as default - with touch-tap disabled?  This should work on a single machine or setup within a build.  Existing PC's would be difficult and new builds could be setup in OS with default profile as a preferred measure
