Writing ps to disable touchscreen

While I have most of the ps written to change the registry value "config flag" on a system level I'm running into access issues. The model is HP EliteBook 810 G1 and the driver is Atmel Touch screen which needs to be disabled. Any assistance would be appreciated.

what kind of access issues ? And why you need to go to the registry for services ?
What about something like this:
Get-Service | where displayname -like *maxTouch* | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled

@rastoi We were able to figure out Windows "Devcon", an exe that can run remotely using psexec and query installed drivers, disable/enable and all that. Although I cannot script this to work across multiple devices it can be run without user interaction and disable the touch screen on a system level for all users.

somehow unclear to me - once you disable it (and it doesn't matter if it will be done via devcon, sc or powershell) it is disabled. At system level. No user interaction is needed.Of course, to do this you need to have administrative privileges on remote computers.  If you have such privileges - there is a lot of examples over the EE and whole internet, how to issue the same command to multiple computers. And if you have all those computers in domain, you can attach policy to have this driver disabled.
