Turning off Dynamic Pen Feedback in Home Premium.
There is a wonderful video on the web explaining how to disable this annoying feature, BUT it only works in higher versions of Windows 7 due to lack of gpedit.msc.
Here is the video. http://vimeo.com/8567716
Using only the "services" part of this fix does not help. Completely disabling it made the feedback disappear only until I put my computer to sleep. After the feedback returned, I re-enabled, then disabled "Tablet PC Input Service". Now I can't even get it
to work for a second.
Also, Geek Squad didn't know.
The sooner the reply the better! I use my tablet for my job and trying to draw with that splash is impossible!
