DirectX Installation Error

Hi,

I was installing a game when i was asked to install the Direct X.
Ok, the setup downloaded everything and when it was about to install the applications an error popped up:

"A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted.
Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enabled and the cabinet file certificate is valid. "

I don't know what to do, please help me.

OBs: Is it because i downloaded an unsigned driver for VGA? (laptopvideo2go.com)

Thanks,
Alex.

Hi and welcome alex

yes both unsigned and maybe not certified. If its from a trusted source there shouldnt be any problem but try to get it from your computers mfr. if you can re. 7260. Yes there are links to it but in the next few days the rtm will be out so you may want to wait. If you want 7260 just Pm me and I will give you the link
