Windows 7: Incompatible Driver Blocked

27 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)
Incompatible Driver Blocked


I've recently been presented with such screen, twice so far:
(see attached image)

This is not a system driver, it started appearing after I've installed a few games, I have no idea what it is. I'll gladly get rid of the driver all together, and if something (a game) won't work without it, then I won't mind.

Could anybody tell me what this is and how can I get rid of it?

Hmm.. I really didn't think it'd be that simple, well I feel silly now for bothering you all with such a simple problem. Google is a man's best friend. (as long as that man doesn't mind his privacy being compromised)
Might as well post the simple solution here:
Download 32/64 bit installer from here
Upgrade the driver, or uninstall it (you won't be able to use whatever came with it if you do)
