    Many people who have posted WU [Windows Update] problems on various internet
    help sites have the following two Active X controls.

    Directory = C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files

    - A9Helper.A9
    - HidInputMonitorX

    [1] Are these valid Microsoft software devices?

    [2] I have removed them but WUAU [Windows Update Automatic Update] seems to
    download/re-install them

    When the ActiveX files (above) are examined the following are blank or bogus.

    Description
    Company
    Copyright

    Thus, I expect they are NOT Microsoft controls and can be removed.
