Windows 7: The touchpad on my laptop wont scroll

The touchpad on my laptop wont scroll

This isn't really hugely problematic but its starting to become really annoying whenever i go into the control panel to look at the mouse settings it says:
Unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver

i have tried reinstalling the driver but nothing happened

any help would be greatly appreciated

oh also the windows on my laptop keep going over the taskbar that is unrelated but that's also irritating and i don't know how to fix it and its making the task bar pointless because i have to minimise everything to find it.

For the Taskbar: right click the Start button (lower left corner) and click properties, click the Taskbar tab, and make sure the "autohide" checkbox is not selected.

For the scrolling problem: did you reboot after uninstalling the driver, and do the reinstall after booting?
