http://superuser.com – I have an 2007 HP laptop with an MS intelliPoint USB wireless mouse as well as a SP2 Touchpad (hardwired driver version 15.0.24.0, 6/3/2010) both work fine together (no issues) but when clicking the Mouse icon in Control Panel the Synaptics message pops up that it "Cannot connect to the touchpad driver", how to disable this pesty message with regedit? I tried to update the Synaptics driver but it told me I alredy have the latest. IntelliPoint driver version is new 8.20.409.0. When I reply no to "uninstall TouchPad" option in Control Panel I get the correct picture with either the MS mouse or S (HowTos)
