Hello jimsage =)

This process is not listed anywhere as Malware or Spyware\Adware !!!!
But on some sites it has listed as a Tool to schedule Appointments !!!!

its a standalone tool, means no installtion and no uninstalltion,,,, so if u think that u have not put it urself... u can safely delete its startup entry and can delete it from ur system also.... but i dont think that this is really Harmful !!!

!! GOOD LUCK !!

Thanks for the help, I chose to let it load after your tip.  It seems to not have any effect.  I wonder if it is part of my Outlook Professional Manager Program?
Thanks again
Happy Trails

Actually, appoint.exe is part of the Alps pointing device application.  If you have a laptop with a touchpad, it is likely this is the driver that runs your touchpad.  If you have Screen Tips turned on and you put your pointer over any of the dll files in the Appoint directory, it will tell you what they refer to.

So, if you want to use your touchpad, don't delete it!!!
