I've done the exact same thing (though I'm on Win7 Professional), and it doesn't seem to improve the situation.
My problem is somewhat different too. From time to time the touchpad completely freezes, not registering clicks or swipes, then after a couple of seconds it goes back to normal.

After several hours...

 

My touchpad-icon shows again a blue spot when I do not use the touchpad.  :( it seems that there is more stability after all but not enough to keep it that way.

 

In the directory are some tools for the touchpad.

 

One of them ETDDeviceInformation.exe shows the information from touchpad to PC.

 

There you can see that the touchpad notice one finger, seems to hang and send constantly data to the PC (closing the screen reset the driver I think)

I think I contact also my local seller about this problem.

It is better with the 11.14.1.3 driver, but still has problems.  One interesting feature that I don't recall having seen before is TP Rejection which turns off the touchpad when you're typing. Is that in the earlier version of the software (accessible from the tray on the "additional"  tab in options).

I think this is the best driver so far, and yes there are some options more or less in the different versions.

Now it's also started doing the pointer drifitng you guys experienced. They should address this issue ASAP.
Also, how come Lenovo don't have Win7 drivers online? I know this is a fairly new product, but still, support should be ready by now.

I know a lot of you have hope that its a simple driver fix, however after 13 pages its clearly not.  I believe its a hardware issue. The lack of technical help from Lenovo isnt helping the issue also.
