Each time I open my labtop the settings for the mouse (or touchepad) returns to default. The synaptic program is up to date and also the vista.

Which settings return to default?  And what do you mean by "default"?  I don't see any button, check mark, etc. in my Mouse Properties of Control Panel that are labeled "default"...

It is the pointer speed and the option:enhance pointer position. Every time the computer opens the cursor return in the middle and the enhance pointer option is unchecked.

The problem is solved: it was the logitech set point program that was badly uninstalled and was starting on opening.

I am sorry, I realize that I did not present the problem with enough details. My conputer is a Acer (Aspire 5610) with Vista home premium edition ( notebook) and with a touch pad(the program for it ,is Synaptics). I installed a wireless mouse that was part of a kit with a keyboard: Di Novoo(I installed just the mouse). The program for the mouse was SetPoint 2.20a.I uninstalled the program but it stayed in the startup...that was the problem.
Is it possible to install a mouse with the touchpad without problem? Wich one?

So you are deciding to reopen the question?

I have a Dell laptop that came with a touchpad, and I've found I dislike touchpads, so I installed a USB mouse and disabled the touchpad in the Mouse section of Control Panel; it works perfectly fine that way.

I once tried to install a wireless mouse with that laptop, but was unsuccessful. so I stuck with the USB mouse.
