However, If you were fooled, use this to wipe it out of you system!

Installing IdeaCom HID Touch Screen (PS/2) can be trouble

Windows Update has an optional install “IdeaCom Technology Inc. – Input – IdeaCom HID Touch Screen (PS/2).

Don’t just download and install it because Microsoft Windows Update recommends it.

Think twice before you do this or you might be in trouble. Your mouse or touchpad might stop working.

If you have installed it and want to uninstall the update here are some tips you can use.

If you have a laptop and a touch pad you might not want to install it as the touch pad will not work and maybe not your PS/2-mouse either. That means the cursor will just stick to the middle of the screen. If you have a mouse you can plug it in (it should work if it is connected to the USB port) but without a mouse you need to use the keyboard only and that can be quite a task to use.

Notice that if you install it you will not find it among the Add/Remove programs.

If you have a mouse start the device manager. Without a mouse press the Windows key and start enter “device manager” and you will find it in the result. If it is at the top you can just press Enter.

Press left arrow so the Continue button in the UAC dialog box gets active and press Enter.

When the Device Manager has started press Tab to move to the tree view. Use the arrows and move to Human Interface Devices. Right click or press the right click button or Shift+F10 on the keyboard and you can move to Uninstall and press Enter and then follow the instructions. If you want you can check the box to remove the driver as well.

Reboot.

Visit Windows Update select it, right click and select Hide update so you don’t get fooled to install it (again).

It might also be needed to manually remove the driver.

C:\windows\system32\drivers\idcphid.sys can be renamed to idcphid.old for example or you can delete it.

Another way is to use System Restore to roll back to previous state. (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore) and then select your Restore Point.

I got this on Windows Vista. Could be same in Windows XP.

Just a guess, but I think it disables your ps/2 mouse because it's for TOUCH SCREEN

edit:

lol it actually disables your touch pads also. only way to fix it manually is plug in a usb mouse.

gg microsoft.

Never let Windows Update update anything that isn't a MS program. It cocks everything up.

Plug dat usb mouse.

It is not Microsofts fault, it is a 3rd party driver for a device.

@ Ioan If you don't know what it is, and you aren't having problems, don't install it. It fucked up your computer because you don't know what you are doing.
I say it is MS's fault. I don't own a touch screen... but yeah, lesson learned.

Nah you didn't get me. Why would they recommend a driver for something you don't use, want and don't even have? I thought it was something with the tablet PC and was unsure.

I mean, don't they have the tech to analyze your pc so they know what is inside? I guess so if It can propose you nvidia and realtek drivers (I own a 750i, GTX280...) So that update should not of been there no?

It is possible to navigate the computer with the keyboard alone, it just takes a good while longer to do simple tasks.

Exactly. Windows Update is shit for that kind of stuff.

Besides, I run Vista, and I haven't gotten it. Must be quite case-specific.
The idea of any hi-fi system is to reproduce the source material as faithfully as possible, and to deliberately add distortion to everything you hear (due to amplifier deficiencies) because it sounds 'nice' is simply not high fidelity. If that is what you want to hear then there is no problem with that, but by adding so much additional material (by way of harmonics and intermodulation) you have a tailored sound system, not a hi-fi. - Rod Elliot, ESP
