What is ETDWare PS/2-X64 _WHQL?

ETDWare PS/2-x64 is the device driver installed for an Elan Microelectronics Touch Pad. ELAN's Smart Click-Pad eliminates the need of physical buttons since the entire touchpad functions as buttons. User can click almost anywhere on the touchpad to simulate the mouse left or right button click. It's different from traditional touchpad, because it can support multi-finger gesture to let the user interact with their laptop more intuitively. The WHQL is Windows Hardware Quality Labs tested by Microsoft.
