Hi, I'm just installed NIS 2009 184.108.40.206 and it's causing apoint.exe (alps touchpad) 3-22% cpu usage fluctuations consistently when idle or doing anything else. When I uninstall NIS, apoint.exe cpu usage goes back to 0%. I've already tried reinstalling NIS twice, both using NRT and it's still doing the same thing. I have all the latest updates for Windows XP sp3. I used to use Charter Internet Security Suite (uninstalled of course).
It also caused nvsvc32.exe (nvidia driver helper) cpu usage to fluctuate but around 10%, but I fixed it with a driver update through Dell's website.
I'm guessing it's a driver issue through alps touchpad, but Dell's latest alps driver (220.127.116.11) for my Inspiron 9300 is already installed.
Anyone have any ideas to keep NIS from making apoint.exe cpu usage high?
Here's my system specs:
Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop
Windows xp media center edition 2002 SP3
Intel Pentium M 1.86ghz
