How to disable windows 7 touch cursor

    Question

  • Hi,

    I wrote an application for my tablet, and would like to use only this application on the tablet. For this I locked down Windows and disabled some features that are disturbing my app (for example the touch circle, the right mouse click gesture, flicks etc.). The last feature I'd like to disable, and for which I spent a lot of time searching the internet before coming here, is the small "cursor" (star shaped) that shows up at the place you touch the screen. Is there a way to do this with a GPO or somewhere in the registry?

    Thanks in advance!
