I get a few updates on the 14th from Microsoft. I let the laptop update and do it's thing, and when I get back I'm left with a laptop with no touch screen capabilities. I go into devmgmt and sure enough all the HID drivers are gone and missing like they was manually uninstalled and deleted. I run a hardware check and update no drivers available. I check my screen settings and there is a old crappy generic driver from Microsoft dated back to 2006. I had to go back to Toshiba website and download all the drivers again. I go and look at the updates logs nothing having to do with drivers at all. They all say "Security" update. This is like the last updates of them saying "Security" update and sneaking in their "Get Windows 10" Garbage.

Windows 8.1 updates have been bricking the update service all week! I have run into three machines that windows update ruined its own service. This is not surprising.  Their updates are going back to XP style haha.

It looks like it. The thing that gets me irritated is you don't know what patch did it because they label everything "Security". Later you find out the damage it caused. What kind of crazy security patch deletes all your HID drivers?? lol. I poke my screen to type in the password and no response I'm like oh that's nice!!

Use windows update troubleshooter.  Make sure to go into advance and uncheck the box.  Also make sure to set updates to download but not install all updates.  This way you can go one by one until you get them done.  This last round really threw out some crap updates....

It makes me a money maker, however for most people its a bank breaker... I would rather it wasn't a problem, I hate when I have to fix peoples machines that are update broken, because when you tell them what did it, they are always mad.

I did try the troubleshooter earlier twice, it didn't fix the update problem, but it did see that there is one.

 

  And yet again:

 

is there a problem:  yes

is it fixed:               NOT FIXED

Go into uninstall and search for the updates most recent by clicking on the date tab and uninstall them. I know it's a pain. Welcome to the crowd. :) When you install them do one at a time.

Try rolling the computer back. Type system restore in the search. Once in there you click on check box to see more restore points. Go back to date before you had problems. Hopefully that fixes it.
