I happened upon this site in my search to make my laptop actually work again.
One of the startup entries is "ehtray" for which there was no entry here.
So I decided to test the results of shutting it off, and it's actually really simple.
ehtray appears to controll the touch-pad scrolling options. [Thus when it is shut off, you have to manually scroll via point and click or arrow buttons]

So that's my little contribution.
If anyone has had different results, please let me know.
Also, If I shoule be reporting this elsewhere on the site, so they can properly update the startup list, please let me know where.

Thank you
