how do I disable tapping feature on touchpad?

I'm desperate to find out if I can disable the tapping feature on the touchpad on my new Sony Vaio E Series SVE15128CG.  It's running Windows 8.  All the info I've found about it so far refers to other Windows systems and doesn't apply to Windows 8.  Is there a way to do it?  I hope someone can help me because it's driving me insane.

Hi, can you please tell me how to this exact thing on a VPCEE32FX model. The menu is not the same as you explained and I cant find the tapping settings. Thanks a lot.

Hi, can anyone tell me how long it takes to get an answer. I'm really desperate as is almost impossible to write anything without having to correct because the pointer keeps moving around. Thanks,

Re: how do I disable tapping feature on touchpad?

I believe you model has a different hw for the touchpad

1) Launch Control Panel (Large Icon)
2) Select Mouse
3) Select the Tapping tab
4) either uncheck tapping or adjust the "Delay after last key is hit" from short to Long
