Hi I had 2 Updates from Microsoft earlier so decided to check again and there was another one for[IDEA Technology Inc. Ideacom HID Touch Screen[ps2]] I can only assume it is for touchscreen computers or TVs.I cant see why they would want me to download it on my 6 year old computer.Anyone any idea if maybe I should have downloaded it.
This was the actual update but it was optional. IdeaCom Technology Inc. - Input - IdeaCom HID Touch Screen (PS/2) Date last published: 1/13/2009 Download size: 31 KB IdeaCom Technology Inc.

Yes looks like it.I use XP Home and don't have a touchpad.Looks like another clanger from Microsoft.I have now set it not to show the update again. Thanks for the info.I will leave the thread open until to-morrow in case anyone else has the same problem.
Saw the MS Update and thought "what? I don't have a friggin' touch screen". So did a search for "IdeaCom HID Touch Screen". Seems it has been screwing up a lot of peoples' systems (PS2 mice in particular).
Hi Batch.We were just thinking the same.Why Microsoft added it to their crucial updates I don't know.I wonder if it actually helps anyone.Going with MAT ALAN'S click here it has been giving users a lot of problems.I would imagine those with automatic updates set might have some problems when they switch there computers on today.
Yes looks like the Forum could be busy today.With some of the information that has been given on here at least we know how to fix it.I wonder what happens if someone has not got there system restore working it may be a bit awkward trying to get it fixed then.
