I'm using a compaq presario notebook running windows 7. Suddenly the synaptics touchpad does not work -- for one user only. I'm logged in now as administrator, and everything is fine. I checked the device's touchpad properties, and it says all is well. I had the computer check the internet for the driver, and it said the driver is current.
So, presumably, something about the user's login is wacky. It must be loading something that eats the pointing device. I can ctrl/alt/del my way out, but I can't seem to select Task Manager to see what's running.
Any ideas on what I should look for?
