Hi All Expert,

Good day.

I have one user which is having unknown driver issue, with mouse and keyboard not being to control. The only way is through F8 disable driver signature enforcement. I have try bcdedit /set testsigning on, bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON, also tried on gpedit ->User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation -> Code signing for drivers

Click on "Disabled", then on "OK".

I did a system restore before last week it works but somehow it came back again, also have disable windows update. All recent software have being uninstall and how can i check for unsign driver.

Appreciate if anyone have this experience can advise me on.

Thanks!

Look on the PC manufacturer's website for updated drivers made for Windows 7, and install them, starting with the chipset drivers, rebooting, then the rest.

Once this works for my similar issue. You can try to edit the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Driver Signing and change value of 'BehaviorOnFailedVerify ' to ZERO, take backup of keys before any edits.

Hi All,

Thank you for reverting back.

I use sigverif and check and found out that that's 5 files have not been digitally signed. It surprised me that 5 of them are system files. I don't know should I remove it, if anyone had this knowledge kindly advise me.

Below are the 5 files.

peauth.sys
usbd.sys
usbehci.sys
usbhub.sys
usbport.sys

Thanks!

As I mentioned already, download the latest official drivers for your OS and PC from the PC manufacturer. Those drivers should be properly signed.
