Microsoft IntelliPoint 8.1

What is Microsoft IntelliPoint?

IntelliPoint is the Microsoft brand software driver for Microsoft's mice. Software features may only be available with certain mice models. (Button options are specific to the selected model.) Depending on the software version and specific mouse product, users can define mouse buttons to run any executable program or file they desire (or a control key + letter combination) and can even define buttons for different functions in chosen programs.

Overview

Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is ipoint.exe. The software installer includes 33 files and is usually about 47.74 MB (50,056,045 bytes).
