ASUS Ep121/B121 Windows 8 disable touchscreen

Yea so I had searched night and day for this answer but no results How do you properly disable the touchscreen on an ASUS B121 or EP121? Well lets begin when you go to Pen/Touch settings there isn't the option to disable touch as a matter of fact the toggle button isn't even there and if your a digital artist like me fighting with the pen or palm thing is obnoxious so I been wondering you see I bought Windows 8 and do not wish to sell it or throw it away, and I here people going to there device manager and disabling there touchscreens which is not very safe at all is there a way for me to dig deep into the Windows 7 x64 settings and pull out that Pen/Touch application and inserting it into Windows 8. I know Microsoft would be a bit angry but after searching through windows 7 and 8's files ive found several similar things and thought hey this might work
what do i do if the option isnt there? Is there some foiegn program to disable it like how theres foreign programs for controlling sound?
1>control panel
2>Device manager
3>Human Interference Devices(expand it)
4>right click on 'HID-compliant device' and select disable
