Need Help Identifying a Program
« on: October 03, 2007, 05:08:44 PM »
I am not able to uninstall a program because I can't identify it. It shows up when I middle click the title bar of any application and produces an 'mac expose' like effect showing me a screen with all open windows. Also shows up when I middle click the task bar.

I have used Autoruns to identify starting processes, but can't seem to find the program doing this. Currently, I use Pitaschio, Strokeit and taskbarshuffle, but its not any of them because I have tried disabling them from startup, yet this effect persists.

I would appreciate any clues from fellow users as to which programs do this.

There are several programs out there that can do that.

Assuming it isn't running under a service, please download [http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/processesandthreads/processexplorer.mspx]process explorer[/url], run it and select file->save as... Then attach that file to a post here, so that we can see which processes you have running (if you don't have problems with that).

I going to take a wild guess on that you have Microsoft's Intellipoint mouse drivers installed, correct? Yes, they copied Exposé and called it "Instant Viewer"...and embedded it in their mouse software ;)

Many thanks Dirhael, that was the one! I just upgraded to Intellipoint 6.2 yesterday and this stared. I managed to disable it from the mouse settings in the control panel.
