Pen Flicks on a notebook pc?

Jeff

I noticed that my new notebook pc running Windows 7 64 bit has "Pen
Flicks" installed and running. I am not that familiar with flicks but it
seems out of place on a laptop which does not have a touch screen like a
tablet does. What role could it possibly have in a normal laptop?

I disabled it because I thought it might conflict with the touchpad
driver (which is giving me fits) and it seems to have helped, somewhat.

Any ideas why this would be active by default?

Maybe it's something to do with possibly having something like a Walcom
Tablet installed. I have one of them (seldom use it) and it seems to me
it'd work much like a touchscreen if one wanted it to, e.g point on
tablet is point on screen.

Just a thought.

Thanks.
I disabled it and discovered that the touchpad would no longer do things
like scroll. The notebook is an ASUS R500VM which has an ELAN touchpad
instead of the usual Synaptics one in one most other brands.
