Synaptics executable is making access to user's Desktop. Actually what for?

2019-06-16, 13:32 PM

Windows Defender's CFA (controlled folder access) is blocking C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe from accessing %userprofile%\Desktop. I wonder why Synaptics software needs to access user's Desktop. Any ideas?

if you look into file, C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynRemoveUserSettings.dat.

You may find some script action to try to remove some desktop shortcuts.

I did not see such files in my desktop folder, it may contains the codes to remove some shortcuts from my desktop in Trackpoint service.

Thanks for your findig and hint from you. I wonder where on Synaptics software stack's side the need to store on Desktop some links or files of other types. For Links aimed to be removed by pointed out script the intend to create in Desktop seem to be in Synaptics software.
