    Thank you for the explanation.

    There is an excellent reason why Microsoft added the requirement that drivers be digitally signed. I certainly don't want any unsigned kernel-mode drivers on my computers. An unsigned driver might have been altered to include malware that could harm your computer or steal information. Have you heard of Rustock?

    Rightly said Corrine as for unsigned drivers their may be some unexpected threat and we don't have any control over this.
