Can you help me please?

T.Y. in advance

antivirus is warning about the BCD is allawing non-signed drivers installation.
Would like to fix this.
Is it worth it?
Confusion arose because you asked how to enable or disable the installation of unsigned drivers.

Now that you have confirmed you don't want to allow unsigned drivers to be installed, we can try a different approach.

Have you checked that UAC is enabled?

Try Visual BCD Editor - Windows 7/Vista - every single bit and byte is displayed...

Every loader and element is displayed with symbolic name and internal {GUID} or hexadecimal id.

To edit an element (of a loader) just double-click it - if it is of enumeration type you will get symbolic names to choose from like NxPolicy -> OptIn, OptOut ......for example.

The element is AllowPrereleaseSignatures (id=0x16000049) - it is a boolean.

It is best to delete it. (Select it and click Delete, Confirm.)

To find out which loader it belongs to exactly check loaders by {GUID}.
