Windows 7: Signed driver error for the freeware program Hwinfo benchmark program

Signed driver error for the freeware program Hwinfo benchmark program

The Hwinfo benchmark program shows the error repeatedly given in the attachment of my
screen shot.


What is the best method to turn off drive signing or fix the error in Win7?
I can see a fix the program note on there but I don't understand any of it.


it's for Hwinfo Benchmark program. That error message stays on until I
force a reboot which is another pain.

Hi loninappleton,

I think samuria means that installing the Microsoft KB3033929 update should fix this problem!

Reading this might help: Troubleshooting Install and Load Problems with Signed Driver Packages

I hope this helps!

Yes, at one point even before I wrote here I had done that. When I retried I was reminded of the error on install after download.


I'm still not getting anything from KB3033929. Attached is the new error message.


There are other fixes apparently-- most notably from a site called windowsreport.com:


A digitally signed driver is required: 3 ways to fix it


I haven't done the procedures they show yet.


A friend just downloaded the HWinfo prog. and ran it straightaway in XP with none of these hoops to jump through.
