Disable Dell Inspiron 15 touchpad

I prefer to use a mouse. When I am typing, it is difficult to avoid the touchpad. I asked on a local (Crete) forum for advice but, in every case, it seemed as though I had a different version of Windows 7 Control Panel because, no matter what route I took, there was no mention of the touchpad. I also googled the question and got many replies but, again, they seemed to be looking at something different from what I get. One suggested running a .exe file but it does not appear anywhere on the computer. The only possible solution was to stick a piece of cardboard over the touchpad!!
Has anyone any ideas?

1.Right click the touchpad icon in the system tray (it looks like a monitor with a flash green dot).
2.Pointing device properties -> Devices tab.
3.Touchpad - click Disable.
4.Touchpad buttons - click Disable.
5.Click Disable Touchpad/Stick when a USB pointing device is present.
