    I have a new Toshiba Tecra A7. For some reason, Toshiba doesn't preload some utilities, including their Hotkey Utilities (you press the Fn key and mute, dim, brighten, etc. by pressing different F keys). So Toshiba sends the app for you to install separately.
    Something is blocking the install of the Hotkey Utilities (HU) on my machine. I load the app. No errors during installation. But no success.
    I've downloaded the app from Toshiba's web site and I've run that in case the app they sent me is corrupted. That doesn't work either.
    Toshiba tech support thinks there's another program I have running/installed that's blocking the installation of HU. Of course, they have no guesses what it might be so they recommend running a recovery disk which would zero out all the development I've done. Big help.
    I've done an internet search for this problem and found other frustrated users with different Toshiba machines. Here's one saga http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t50580.html

    No solutions found so far. Any ideas?
