HID touchscreen technology/ features - as TRWis said...Don't forget to go back to microsoft update and click on don't show this update again!!! X-(

H-mm.:0 X-( Looks like Microsoft made this update entry "disappear." There is still no 'official' Microsoft
response or reasonable explanation of what has happened; especially to all those who mistakenly accepted the 'auto update' or blindly manually updated this 'blooper.'

Re: Microsoft Update - IdeaCom HID touchscreen (ps2) - Warning
I just spent the last hour fixing this problem--I think I spend more time "fixing" microsoft updates than any other problems with my pc. I used the advice in this link from Steve--best answer. Hope maybe this will help others--only problem is if you don't have a usb mouse to use to navigate its not easy!!!!
Don't forget to go back to microsoft update and click on don't show this update again!!!
Have a good day!!!!!
