    How to solve "digitally signed driver is required"


    Hello everyone.

    Recently I kept getting this popup saying *A digitally signed driver is required*

    How do I find out what program is using this unsigned driver to remove this popup?

    Thank you for the reply.

    I don't see any errors on there, nor any yellow triangles with exclamation mark inside

    Standard W10 settings do not allow unsigned drivers so that must be some program misrepresenting. If it doesn't happen with particular program, try turning off programs from Startup and see if and which one stops it from appearing.

    On Windows 10 (64-bit), Microsoft has included a feature, driver signature enforcement feature that is designed to ensure that users of 64-bit versions of Windows require that you install digitally signed drivers.

    Digitally signed drivers come with an electronic fingerprint that guaranties that the driver was created by the hardware manufacturer and that it hasn’t been modified since it was created.

    If your drivers aren’t digitally signed you won’t be able to install them at all which means that you won’t be able to use the hardware that is associated with them.

    To install less-than-official drivers or old unsigned drivers, you’ll need to disable driver signature enforcement.

    Not sure if @Brink has a tutorial for disabling driver signature enforcement, so this may help instead:

    Before doing that, try this to check your drivers - it may highlight the problematical one:

    Definitely identify the offending program before disabling driver signature enforcement.

    Doesn't the pop-up tell you what driver it's complaining about? That could give us some clue on what program it is.
