In the last few weeks my media functions/hotkeys for both my keyboard and media remote have stopped working, for example the volume keys.
-haven't done any updates
-have tried restarting obviously
-have tried using different usb for both affected devices
-haven't introduced any new hardware
-but i have ran ccleaner... which seems to be the likely culprit of the issue
in 'services' directly from start menu (rather than going directly through msconfig) i have noticed that the human interface device is set to disabled, so i suspect this to be the problem but it wont allow me to change it and and tells me 'system cannot find the specified path'. so thats where i have got the idea the registry has been corrupted(?) what can i do to sort out this issue and does it seems likely i have the correct 'diagnosis'? i am dubious about running a registry fixing program in case it tampers with the registry even more.
