Windows 7: Synaptics PS/2 Port Compatible TouchPad

Synaptics PS/2 Port Compatible TouchPad

I did a clean install of Windows 7 (yeah for me!) on my acer aspire 5336-2524. I also downloaded the device driver for Synaptics PS/2 Port Compatible TouchPad, unzipped it, and I think I installed it? I did an auto search for the best driver and result was the best driver was installed.

My problem is this, there used to a function within Personalize > Change Mouse Pointers > then touch pad. Here is where I could stop the function of the scroll bar along the right side of the touch pad and make scroll work with two fingers.

I don't know if that function was part of acer or Synaptics PS/2 Port Compatible TouchPad. But I want it back!

also there is nothing of the original factory install because when I made all the restore and back up it was crap, I found out after I needed it.

All that is there except still nothing for the touch pad. Now a new minor issue is every time I restart the synaptics software asks to be run.

Did you download the driver from the Acer Site?

Acer Downloads

It shows two, one synaptics and one elantech. (that was the case in a few other threads) Try both of them, one at time.
