So i was cleaning up my laptop from bloatware and deleted acer bloatware through "add or remove programs" function on windows. i deleted the following: acer collection, acer configuration manager, acer quick access, acer UEIP framework, bonjour, and vulkan rune time libraries. How can i get my cursor back for my touchpad? it just dissapeared and i tried restarting the computer but it didnt work. system restore also failed for some reason. thank you.

The touchpad drivers sometimes are mistaken by all the bloatware software the laptops are preloaded with (been there, got a T-shirt).
Usually the drivers are called "Acer PTP" (meaning Acer Precision Touch Pad).

Connect an external mouse so you can open a web browser and look for the drivers on the Acer website.

I've found the drivers for the family of your model (A315) could be:

If not, google the exact model. Next time, leave the "PTP" entry alone :)
