Apoint.exe? Windows Defender won't load.

Yesterday I got a message saying "apoint.exe was unable to load dll". I know apoint.exe applied to my laptop's touchpad, but what it also seems to have done is prevent Windows Defender from loading. At all. It simply fails to initialize without even giving me an error message. I haven't downloaded anything recently; this more or less came out of the blue.

I checked the apoint driver and found that it's not even digitally signed. Is this thing some sort of a virus? How do I get Defender to start up again?
