    My computer takes a good 10 minutes to load up. It gives different messages every time I turn it on. Today the messages are: Alps pointing-device driver has stopped working; and Microsoft windows search Indexer stopped working and was closed?

    can anyone tell me how to fix this? Visata is driving me mad!!!!

    Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
    1. Open Windows Explorer
    2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
    3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
    4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
    5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.

    good luck, hope this helps
