You can disable the SmartArea after the driver for the touch pad has been installed because this is an option that needs to be configured after it was installed. Install the necessary drivers for the laptop, and then go to Control Panel > Synaptics Touchpad or the compatible support software for the touch pad. Once you find the application, go to its Settings and there should be the possibility to turn on or off the Smartarea feature.

Thank you but I did try all that. I eventually found that a few functions in
the Elan Touchpad had been disabled in the registry, why I don't know.
