Hello Experts,

I've been trying to find a setting or reason why Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center keeps trying to download software when it is already installed. Every morning when I boot my Windows 7 64-bit computer, I receive this window.

Download Window
Can anyone tell me how to disable this so I don't see it every morning or why it's doing it?

Wow I waited a whole day and no replies. I guess my question doesn't mean anything.

It doesn't mean that at all, all it means is that an expert hasn't seen it yet.  use autoruns from sysinternals or msconfig and remove it from your startup..

Any updates is usually for a program installed on your system, so it's worth noting what is installed in your computer,  when you first get your system become familiar with all the programs running in the task manager. Check it often to see if anything has been added
since spyware is visible here viruses as well.
I discovered this program itype.exe  by checking my task manager, it seems a windows update updated driver for my keyboard and mouse and installed this software.
Check your program files or your task-manager for a service called itype.exe rightclick it and open file location.
itype servicesIn there is Microsoft Help open that and go to updates.

Just in case if the issue is still not resolved then try this

Make sure the keyboard and mouse are not connected to a usb hub ..connect them directly.

Connect them to another usb ports and check
