Default Windows XP tablet options?

Im running Windows XP 64-bit and Im using a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. I have the latest drivers installed but Im running into this irritating problem. I cant figure out how to disable the "Press and Hold" for right-clicking option. If you're not familiar with it, what this does, is if I press the tablet stylus to the tablet surface and hold it there, a little icon appears around the cursor of a right-clicking mouse, which enables the right-clicking action. This is always getting in my way and it causes a lot of latency and accuracy issues.

Ive read that this can be disabled in the "Pen and Touch" options, but I cannot seem to find this anywhere. Most of the information Ive found to deal with this problem was for Windows 7, which is a slightly different layout compared to XP.
Some of these articles have said that the "Pen and Touch" options are in Control Panel, but I only find the Wacom Tablet Properties options there, which does not include anything about press and hold.
Another article mentioned to go to Start> Run> gpedit.msc and open the Local Group Policy Editor and look for the Pen and Touch options there, but I still do not see anything.

It used to be that stopping or disabling the Wintab or TabletPC services (in Administrative Tools> Services) would solve the tablet issues, but they are either disabled or not there.

This is quite frustrating and I have looked everywhere to figure out how to disable this feature.
If anyone has any suggestions, Id greatly appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!

FYI, there is no XP 64-bit. It is simply a cut-down Server 2003.

Not sure about the tablet.

x64? That may be, but it looks exactly like XP except that its 64 bit. Well, I figured that info could maybe help but I think Im using the least commonly used OS nowadays haha.

There most certainly is, my office PC is running XP Pro x64. It maybe a cut-down of Server 2003 but it was sold as Windows XP Professional x64.

I'm only going by what Mak said, I believe. I thought there was no released x64 version, just tweaked.
