I have a Dell laptop. Oftentimes, while "mousing around" using the touchpad, it will unintentionally highlight things. This is a behavior that I never, ever want. Also, sometimes it will unintentionally "grab on to things," like graphics on a webpage, and try to drag them around. I do not ever want to highlight or grab things using the touchpad. This "feature" messes me up CONSTANTLY. My last Dell laptop did the same thing. Is there any way to turn this "feature" off permanently?

Several years ago, I asked a telemarketer to be placed on their "Do not call list." The telemarketer hung up on me before I could ask for a copy of their do-not-call policy, but I did not receive any calls for several years. Now they are calling again incessantly. I have not answered any of their calls. Are they in violation of the FCC's telemarketing laws, since I have technically asked to be put on their company-specific do not call list?
