optional Windows Update “Synaptics driver update for Synaptics Composite USB HID Device” breaks some UltraNav USB keyboards

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/27

About a year ago, I ran into the optional Windows Update “Synaptics driver update for Synaptics Composite USB HID Device”.

It basically breaks the UltraNav/TrackPoint functionality of some USB keyboards like my 31P9304 USB TrackPoint keyboard (also known as SK-8835)

I bumped into this on another system as well, so I was glad I found this on an asian site: 联想ThinkPad|ThinkCentre|ThinkStation服务与驱动下载常见问题.

Below is the English translation of which the most important is the workaround: Install the Windows Vista driver from the Lenovo support page.
