Windows Central Question

My computer is stuffed after updates were installed yesterday, I did not have an option to decline the updates, now everything in crap.

I use a normal mouse, the touch pad is making me lose data and overwrites stuff as it moves arounf itself.

Right click on Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse settings, there's a option for auto disable touch pad when a usb mouse is plugged

as for the pc being stuffed - you can run a disk cleanup to clear space
