    GameInput crashing my pc

    Hello Theo, sorry about your problems. My name is Marco and I will do my best to help you.

    To address the issue of Microsoft GameInput causing crashes on your PC, there are several strategies you can employ to either disable or permanently remove GameInput.

    You can try disabling the "GameInput Host Service" via the Services application (services.msc). This has been suggested as a potential fix but might not be a permanent solution as updates could re-enable the service.

    It's important to note that some of these solutions might impact the functionality of certain games or services, such as Xbox Game Pass.

    Otherwise, to remove it completely, you can consult this forum where several suggestions are posted.
     
  3. Microsoft Gameinput still trying to install updates after being uninstalled

    Hi

    Welcome to Microsoft community.

    If you've uninstalled Microsoft GameInput, but you're still seeing updates being attempted, there could be a few reasons for this behavior. Here are some potential culprits and steps you can take to address the issue:

    1. Automatic Updates: Windows Update might still be trying to install updates for Microsoft GameInput even after you've uninstalled it. Sometimes, updates can linger in the update queue even if the software is removed. You can try the following:
      • Go to "Settings" > "Update & Security" > "Windows Update."
      • Click on "Check for updates" to see if there are any pending updates for Microsoft GameInput. If there are, try to install them, as it might clear the update queue.
      • If the updates are causing issues, you can try hiding them by right-clicking on the update and selecting "Hide update."
    2. Incomplete Uninstallation: Sometimes, when software is uninstalled, remnants of the application can still remain on the system. This can lead to update-related issues. To address this:
      • Reinstall Microsoft GameInput (if possible).
      • Use an uninstaller tool (like Revo Uninstaller) that can perform a more thorough uninstallation, including cleaning up leftover files and registry entries.
    3. Background Services: Some software includes background services that can continue running even after the main application is uninstalled. These services might still trigger update attempts. To address this:
      • Open the "Task Manager" (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and check if there are any Microsoft GameInput-related processes running. If you find any, try to end them.
      • You can also use the "Services" application (services.msc) to check for any lingering services related to Microsoft GameInput.
    4. Third-Party Software: If you're using any third-party software related to gaming or system optimization, it might have its own mechanisms for managing updates. This software might be triggering the update attempts. Try disabling or uninstalling such software to see if it resolves the issue.
    5. Malware or PUA: It's possible that malware or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) are causing unwanted behavior, including the attempt to update Microsoft GameInput. Run a full system scan using a reputable antivirus or antimalware tool.

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any further updates, thanks.

    Best regards
