    Hi Gary,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • Do you face the issue only with Sniper Ghost Warrior?
    We would suggest you to update the graphics drivers and check.

  3. Dell Inspiron 13 5378 "Ghost Clicking"

    Hi IcyGreenDonut,

    Experiencing "Ghost Clicking" on your laptop could be both a software or a hardware issue. For us to sort this out, I suggest uninstalling the driver and let Windows reinstall it. Follow these steps:

    1. Right-click the Windows key and select Device Manager.
    2. Expand the Human Interface Devices category, right-click your
      HID-compliant touch screen, then click Uninstall.
    3. Restart your laptop.

    If the issue persists, then I recommend that you get in touch with the Dell Support Team or visit their support site through
    this link for assistance in updating the touchscreen firmware as the issue is leaning towards becoming a hardware issue, specifically the touchscreen.

    Should you need more information or have further queries, feel free to update this thread.

    Removing Ghost Printer


    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing some issues using Windows 10.

    This might have occurred due to hardware conflicts.

    Try the methods.

    Method 1:

    Uninstall the Printer Drivers.

    Follow the steps given below to uninstall the Printer drivers.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.

    • Search for Printer Adapters and expand it.

    • Right click on the Printer driver and select
    Method 2:

    Note: Ghost devices are the previously installed devices which are not connected but the drivers for that device is still present in the computer and sometimes shows in the
    devices list.

    To get rid of unwanted drivers, devices, or services, use the following steps:

    • Open the Start menu.

    • Swipe to the upper right corner to bring charm bar.

    • Type cmd in search box.

    • Select cmd from the displayed list, right click and
      Open as administrator.

    • At the command prompt, type in
      set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and press Enter.
    (Note that nothing seems to happen. This is expected. You are actually setting an environment variable which is going to help you to see hidden devices.)

    • On the next command prompt line, type
      devmgmt.msc and press Enter. This will launch the Windows Device Manager Console.

    • In the Device Manager Console, from the
      View menu, select Show Hidden Devices.
    As you expand the different drivers and devices in the device manager, you will see not only the items that Windows currently detects as installed on your PC; but you will also see drivers, devices, and services which have
    been loaded in the past but were not uninstalled or are not currently started. You can find your offending device, right-click, and choose
    uninstall to remove it from the system completely.

    Note that ghost devices, drivers, and services are “grayed” out, but that does not necessarily mean that you should delete all of them. Only remove items you know you do not need. Be careful that you do not change too many

    Once you have removed the ghost drivers completely from the system, try to reinstall the drivers for the Webcam and check if it helps.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you need any other assistance with Windows in future. We will be happy to assist you.
