    Is it possible to keep Windows Update from deleting unsigned drivers?


    We use a few Windows 10 Pro machines in a laboratory setting at work, and they use a particular piece of hardware to flash microprocessors with new code. The device works fine, even though it was made for XP, however the drivers for it are unsigned.

    The problem is that every time there is a moderate to major Windows update, the update kills off the device drivers for this thing. Yes, I can reload them, but loading unsigned drivers in Win 10 is a royal pain in the butt and I would rather not have to do it every two weeks.

    Is there any way to keep Windows from getting rid of these drivers?
