What is ipoint.exe?

Part of Microsoft IntelliPoint by Microsoft

What is it?

Microsoft IntelliPoint is the Microsoft brand software driver for Microsoft's mice. It has been succeeded by Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center, which combines IntelliType with IntelliPoint. Depending on the software version and specific mouse product, users can define mouse buttons to run any executable program or file they desire and can even define buttons for different functions in chosen programs. IntelliPoint supports all known Microsoft mice, as well as generic 3/5-button mice.
Description of ipoint.exe from Microsoft
IntelliPoint includes support for the Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse and an application to practice using the Microsoft Touch Mouse. With IntelliPoint, setup automatically detects your mouse model. If you have more than one mouse attached to your computer, each mouse model can have different button assignments. The scrolling experience for mice with smooth scroll wheels has been improved in many applications. PS/2 devices are no longer supported in IntelliPoint.
