Get Rid Of Pesky Un Signed Driver Installation Warnings

To prevent this warning or to allow new un-signed drivers to be installed do the following:

1. Go to start/run/ then type secpol.msc
2. Browse to local policies/security options
3. Change "Devices: Unsigned driver installation behavior" setting to Silently succeed.
4. Reboot Computer.

Or, especially if you are using XP Home where there is no secpol.msc, right click on your My Computer icon, click properties, change to the Hardware tab, click the "Driver signing" button and click ignore.

    you should write what you are changing "Devices: Unsigned driver installation behavior" to from.. so if a user change it and will change it back later, s/he can look back at this tips to remember what the default settings was. and I'll can't find "Devices: Unsigned driver installation behavior" under local policies/security .. I'm using Win. XP pro, so that may be the prob if it's only for Home Edition (?)
