I have hp pavillion dv6 laptop(Windows 7) with a synaptics touchpad . The gestures like two finger scroll doesn't work automatically after I disabled a startup service or something. (I dont remember properly what I did). But having the synaptics touchpad service enabled during the startup doesn't help. I have to go to the control panels and after clicking on the synaptics control panel icon the gestures start working. Any help here?

       But my real question is something else. I have a Linux Mint Nadia setup in my machine. When I use the gestures in the linux os it is much more smoother and responsive. I guess thats because of better drivers (?). Is there a way I could get the same experience in windows. Like an alternative driver maybe? I'm not very sure about how it all works. Please bear with the ignorance.
