helpctr.exe going crazy/Apoint.exe problems... My system has been acting pretty bizzare lately. several days ago I started having firefox help tabs opening up randomly and multiplying for no reason. I went to Opera and it was doing same thing, Opera help tabs opening up multiplying until I shut down the browser. Holding down the Alt button stopped them from multiplying oddly enough I found out as I was using alt+f4 as a quick way to end the browser. Then I found out other programs I opened up were doing the same thing. CCleaner, Taskmanager , IE8 ext were all having their help center windows open up. If I clicked x button they go away but if I used the touchpad to move the cursor , said window would pop back up. I bought a mouse to see if that solved anything and it seemed to at first but the problem has shown up while using mouse as well. One of the things I found out while in taskmanager was that apoint.exe was using 99% of the cpu and was also slowing down my system to snail pace. If I end the process before it takes over I can do something, if I dont, apoint.exe takes over and I can't even use the computer. Don't know if I have a bad touchpad software driver or what. I had to stop the apoint.exe process from start up in msconfig just so I can get online to post this problem. As I type this , I have no problems with random help center tabs opening up but sometimes they can appear without warning after a while of being online using the browser. I've done scans with SAS and Malwarebytes with nothing found. Your help is appreciated.
