Something has happened to my computer in the last month or so and now every time I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation and unlock it I immediately get an error dialog: 'TouchControl has stopped working' with the options 'check online for a solution and close program' or 'close program'.


This is under 'problem details':

As far as I can tell this program is related to my fingerprint reader, which I use to log in and/or unlock my computer. Nothing happens (that I can tell) when I click close program except the dialog goes away. The finger print reader is still on and works. I've tried using windows built in troubleshooter for devices and hardware, but it did no good. Any chance there's someone who can help me get this fixed?

Hi kateh,


There's a couple of things you could try, try each step if that one fails.


  1. If you haven't done so already, using the model number of your laptop (or the model number of the finger printer read if its for a computer), find the latest drivers from the internet and try installing those.
  2. In search type Device Manager > Right Click > Run.
    1. ​​​​​Locate the finger print reader. It should be under Biometric Devices. It could be under any of the items listed though.
    2. Once(If) found: Right Click > Properties > Under the Power Management Tab > Uncheck: Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Click OK.
  3. If both of these fail you may want to try disable fast resume (if enabled). BE CAUTIONED: This involves editing the registry, which may cause fatal system errors if done incorrectly. Only do this if you understand the risks and feel confident you can do this correctly. Though it is a relatively easy edit, if you do not follow instructions it will cause problems. 


If option 1 and 2 failed and you wish to proceed:

  1. Search > Regedit > Rightclick > Open
  2. Move to >HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidUsb
  3. Right click in the white area > New > DWord Value > Name This New Value: FastResumeDisable
  4. Double Click this new value (FastResumeDisable) > Type 1 as the value > Click OK
  5. Exit The Registry Editor

Hope one of these helps you out.
