A driver for Microsoft's Intellimouse lineup, IntelliPoint includes a user interface that allows you to configure your mouse settings. IPoint.exe runs as a background process and services the mouse. If you disable the process, the mouse will function as a standard mouse and any settings you made through the IntelliPoint interface will not be in effect. Intellimouse is a line of mice that was introduced by Microsoft in 1997 and were the first mice on the market to have a scroll bar and web-browsing buttons.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/ipoint.exe.html

strange things happened on my pc - input from keybuffer was repeated, keystrokes where done as if from a ghost or remote controller. when i stop iPoint.exe, its all gone. Uninstall! dexter
My mouse is moving around automaticall! I got rid of this and it stopped. It is part of microsoft mouse and keyboard center. There must be a bug in the coding, so I got rid of it for now. If you don't want to delete ipoint.exe, you can rename it to ipoint.exeX or somthing like that to keep it from running.  See also: Link Smitty

i forced it to quit, and my microsoft mouse continued to work blaine
can make the mouse not work very well if it's not a "microsoft mouse" and Windiws detects it as such Jordan

good to have but uses lots of ram jaw
Just a MS mouse driver. Nothing serious. Tomas
Software for Microsoft mouse
Mouse driver for Microsoft products. If your cursor is moving randomly it is because you have set up a macro to do that for you; not the executables fault Ed
if it randomly keypresses things its probably cause of a virus not iPoint and iType. Tehcatninja
Ipoint and itype are both microsoft "products" that come with microsoft certified mice and is not linked to any type of virus. Ninja
