When I boot up my PC, I get the following error.. "HID Non-User Input Data Filter" - fatal error installing. Then if I click "OK" on the error the wallpaper shows. I then have to open Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and click "New Task" and run explorer.exe to get any further. Strangely, sometimes after clicking "OK" on the error the PC starts normally. Any ideas? All assistance gratefully received.

Hi provocateur, Welcome to BC,

I Googled up that HID thingy and found a lot of reading about it here --> http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navc...put+Data+Filter <-- you might give that a go and see if any of it sounds like whats happening with you.

The reading that I did seemed to indicate that the HID thingy is part of a Microsoft Update and this

- fatal error installing

is what I'd call a clue.

Maybe if you could back track through your MS updates you could find the faulty installation and remove it, though I don't know if that's possible.

Sorry I couldn't have been more helpful.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for the link, but it seems that everyone is happy with this software. It does not affect my PC (WinXP SP3), but it is an irritation to see it everytime I start up my PC.
Maybe installing SP3 made the update link at Microsoft think I had Vista and the software doesn't work in XP. Who knows? M$ won't support SP3 until the officiial release is out, so I wait in anticipation.... :thumbsup:

Hi provocateur,

Well from what I read that HID thingy has been giving people a fit for a couple of years now... looks like Microsoft would have fixed that problem by now.
