how to install xbox360 pad

hi all
ive just got an xbox 360 pad for gaming n am trying to find the latest software and drivers for a keyboard n mouse fan myself but when it comes to drivin games my hands just cramp up with arthritis so the pad is a must realy. i must not b lookin in the wrong places. i have read loads of forums pointing to sites with drivers and software but they look out dated. saying u need to hit f8 and disable the signature somethin or other every time u start pc. seems a bit odd to me.
so if anyone could point me in the right direction of the most recent x64 drivers and software needed i will be ever greatfull

any and all help is much apreciated, cheers

You mean the wired USB controller? Just plug it in and it should download the drivers automatically with Windows Update.

If not, try here: Xbox 360 Controller for Windows | Microsoft Hardware
