Disable Ipoint.exe to Ask The User To Insert A Disk

» Whenever I start my computer, ipoint.exe keeps telling me to insert a disk, or that a disk is missing. Is there a way to simply disable this pop-up window? I attempted to fix this by uninstalling ipoint.exe (Version 7) and downloading and installing Version 8. It did not work.

» Ipoint.exe is the software for the Microsoft optical mouse.you are not supposed to be asked to insert a dick while opening it. Therefore, it is a virus infection in this case.

Run a malware scan – Malware programs, if present, can cause various issues on a computer, including recurring exe errors. Close all running applications, reboot your computer in Safe Mode, and run a malware scan. In case malware presence is detected, delete the reported malware/virus(Trojan:MSIL/ProxyChanger.B), and restart your computer in the Normal Mode. Check if the error is fixed now.

After the malware deletion, a thorough system scan is required to diminish the affected dll files in the process of deletion. At present, most current anti-virus software cannot clean the harmful influence on the system, resulting in corrupted or damaged dll files. The best way is to apply a much more professional and efficient tool for this job. Just give a shot to DLL Suite. It allows you to do the automatic fix of any dll file related problems.

Besides, DLL Suite can be used to streamline your system and make your pc run faster.

    With the MsConfig tool, if you want something not to start you must remove the tick from the box. I was hoping that you had more entries than just the normal "Microsoft Intellipoint", something more related to " insert a disk", because if you untick the main entry then the Mouse may not work correctly and become a standard Mouse, sort of like a lame duck.

    If you go into Control Panel\ Mouse and open that up, there is a "Restore Defaults" button which may be worth a try?

    I expected to be delighted with all the new features of Windows 7; to date, it has caused only problems. Every time I start the computer (or, with ipoint disabled in msconfig, start ipoint manually), I have to click on the "insert a disk" box seven or eight times before it finally closes. Several programs that ran fine on my old computer (XP) work poorly or not at all on my new one, even with Compatibility Mode enabled.

  4. AMBER ETZEL replied on January 17, 2013: » If you uninstall Ipoint once more via Programs and Features, and then reinstall it again, but this time right-click on any setup.exe and select the "Run As Administrator" option, to start the install. Try this even if your user is an Admin. See if that gets rid of the insert disk message.

    Incidentally this option might help your older flaky XP applications if you start the loaded programs via a right-click and the "Run As Administrator" option. It is worth a try anyway. You might even be able to get the ones that failed to install to install. Of course some older programs (and hardware) are just not going to work in Windows 7 not matter what you do.
