Windows 7: Replacing Elantech Drivers.

Replacing Elantech Drivers.

Could someone please tell me whether I can replace the Elantech drivers with Synaptics drivers, I have tried adjusting the sensitivity in my Elantech touchpad in my Acer Aspire 5750 but still not comfortable with it.
I have tried to use windows7 generic drivers by uninstalling Elantech drivers but when I restart Elantech drivers are installed again.
I would preferably like to install Synaptics drivers if that's possible but I am not sure whether that will work.
Any suggestions please.

Yes, you should be fine I think. One way of installing the synaptics driver would be to extract the zip to a folder of choice, then in device manager update the touch pad driver and point it to that folder.
