Mouse pointer is freezing up using Google or Firefox browser and at other times.  I suspect tabtip.exe is the issue.  I hate this touch screen thingy, don't want it.  Only way I can sometimes free up the mouse pointer is to tap the screen a few times...which invariably messes up whatever I was doing...but then the pointer comes active again until a couple minutes later when it freezes.  I can't stop the process using Task Manager, so what the heck do I do?

A couple of things...

 

1. A workaround is under Ease of Access, open the On Screen Keyboard and minimize it.

 

2. Stop and/or disable the Tablet PC Input service.

I don't have a clue to what you are talking about.  This is a desktop unit, I don't know what Ease of Access is or how to open an onscreen keyboard.  Sorry.

Click on the Start button, and in the Search box, type Ease.

 

That will show Ease of Access Center as the first result. Click on that.

 

There will be 4 choices under Quick access to common tools. Start On-Screen Keyboard is one of the choices. Click on that.

 

 

For # 2 above...

 

Click on the Start button, and in the Search box, type services.

 

That will show services with a "gear" icon as one of the results. Click on that.

 

Scroll down until you find Tablet PC Input Service.

 

Right-click and select Stop.

 

 

To Disable the service, double click on the entry.

 

In the Startup type drop down, select Disabled and click OK.
