Disable mouse pad on a Dell Latitude

Hi

I have a Dell Latitude.  What I want to do is disable the touch pad when I have a mouse plugged in.  I previously had XP on this machine and was able to do this - I think it was via a Touch Pad tab in the mouse settings.  However since I upgraded to Windows 7 the Touch Pad tab isn't there.

Any ideas how to do this?

Cheers

I tried the link but when I tried to install got the message 'could not find OS specific setup program'.  I am on W7 64 bit - is that causing the message?

You could always disable it in the device manager.

You can also try installing the Synaptics reference drivers.
