    two finger scroll stopped working

    Original Title: two finger scroll

    on 7-30-16 an automatic update for ASUS installed....once again my two finger scroll stopped working. Read through and tried solutions posted after the windows 10 upgrade issue with same problem. Nothing I tried works, under 'mouses' ELAN body is blank,
    so I cant even repair it. Clicked on ELAN in 'programs' to see if it could repair, no button! Clicked on help links, found nothing but sales stuff for ELAN.

    ASUS touchpad or smart gesture not even listed in my programs list.

    I can't figure it out, did a system restore (this update was NOT listed on 'latest updates' to uninstall from there) and the touchpad was back to normal.....for a few minutes, until it auto installed again....grrrr.......

    Help please!
