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.

Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named etdctrl.exe. It also includes a system tray icon that is displayed in the notifications area while the program is running. The setup package generally installs about 15 files and is usually about 16.2 MB (16,986,080 bytes).
