This one is all too common, and we have no idea why. Microsoft LOVES to not only disable services after their seasonal updates, but completely uninstall the service leaving users baffled.

Luckly it is an easy enough fix.

  1. Browse to %programfiles(x86)%\DSDCS\InputMapper HidGuardian
  2. Double click “Install Service”
  3. Reboot

That’s it!
