I have this Lexmark X85 printer/scanner/copier that has some really buggy install software.  What happens is when I get to the point where I connect the USB cable, the Windows Driver Singing notification comes up asking if I am sure I want to install the driver, etc etc.. (you know the screen, right?).  The problem is, the dialogue box QUICKLY flashes in and out in such a wierd, buggy way, I cannot actually click anything on it to "Continue".  It doesn't even show up in the ALT-TAB list, but it's THERE, sort of hiding in the background, waiting to be clicked "Continue".. and of course, I can't click continue because the GUI gives me ZERO access to it due to an apparant bug in the install program.  I ahve tried two different versions of the driver package and they BOTH do it!  It does this on THREE different machines and 2 different OS's.. (Tried XP Pro and ME).

So... is there a way I can temporarily and TOALLY disable driver verification warnings so it automatically accepts and bypasses that screen?  I have a feeling that'd get the driver installed.
