Grrrr. Basically, my touchpad and scroll keys don't work!!
I was running P'Shop and had F'fox in the background and both of them stop responding. I got into taskmanager and was able to close F'fox but P'Shop refused to close. So, in frustration I just turned the power off. Reboot, I chose safe mode, which then also froze... before pulling out my hair I just turned the switch off again; it then rebooted just fine - except the touchpad no longer works!!! (I am currently using a plug-in mouse)
I reinstalled the driver - no good. I tried a restore point - nothing... except a message "...failed to restore C:\Windows with original file... and "Unspecified error occured 0x80071a90
I got into the System Configuration under Admin tools in the control panels and under the Startup tab I see the Synaptic row ticked but the Command field shows - %ProgramFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\blah blah.exe
Everything else in the Comand column show C:\ blah blah...
Anyone have any idea how to get the touch pad to work again?!?! All was fine until I thigns froze and I rebooted.
