After a total hard drive failure I used the recovery disks to reinstall WinXP Pro. Nine drivers were missing and needed customer support to help me locate and install them. The system is now updated to current levels and running very well. However two issues apparently driver related still remain:
1) Upon booting the computer, a program called Apoint.exe is started from the STARTUP group. It does not complete but sits in the tray at the bottom of the screen. When I click on it, I get a totally black screen with a blinking symbol in the upper left corner and a square white cursor. I can end the program with no apparent harm but would like to have it complete normally or not run at all. Seems to be related to the touchpad driver.
2) Upon booting, something like 25 language files named Arabic.bin, etc. get left in the TEMP directory. They seem to be related to the Realtek Audio driver. I can delete them with no apparent problem but they return at the next boot. Very annoying.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I uninstalled the Realtek Audio Driver, emptied the TEMP folder and restarted. The lang.bin files were not there, pretty much confirming the driver as the perp. After downloading, reinstalling the driver and restarting, the lang.bin files were back in the TEMP directory. I deleted them and restarted again and they were back. Reinstalling the driver was not a fix.
Regarding the Alps Touchpad driver, the Lenovo driver site for my laptop only has a Synaptics Touchpad Driver. Is this the correct one to reinstall?

If the Synaptics driver is the correct touchpad driver to reinstall, why is an Alps touchpad program executing when I restart the system? Or is it really a Synaptics touchpad? Maybe the Lenovo support person that helped me by installing these drivers installed the Alps driver by mistake, didn't remove it correctly and then installed the Synaptics driver. Maybe all I really need to do is remove the Alps program from STARTUP?

Why can't I get an answer to what seems a simple question, i.e. why is an Alps touchpad driver module trying to execute if the driver my system needs is the one from Synaptics at the Lenovo site? I'm hesitant to just remove the Alps driver and install the Synaptics one because I can't find a site for the Alps driver if I have to go back to it.
