Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Device drivers are needed in order for the hardware and software to communicate in an operating system. Some of these drivers are digitally signed. These kinds of drivers are drivers that are signed by their issuing authority in a way that the end-user or any third party won’t be able to modify them. And there are times when you encounter an error that says, “Windows requires a digitally signed driver” when you try to install or update device drivers. Driver Signing is the process of associating a digital signature with a driver package. Digital signatures are used in Windows device installations to verify the identity of the vendor providing the driver packages as well as to verify the integrity of the driver packages. All the drivers you usually install on your PC from Windows Update, Original Equipment Manufacturers, or some other third-party driver download software and so on must be verified digitally by Microsoft through the digital signature. A digital signature is an electronic security mark that verifies the publisher for the driver and all the relevant information related to it. That’s why Windows won’t run a driver if it isn’t certified by Microsoft, be it a 32-bit or 64-bit system – this is called the Driver Signature Enforcement. The only Kernel-mode drivers that Windows 10 will load are the ones that are digitally signed by the Dev Portal. However, the changes only affect the new installations of the operating system with Secure Boot on while the non-upgraded fresh installations would require drivers that are signed by Microsoft. The “Windows requires a digitally signed driver” error indicates that the driver you are trying to update or install hasn’t been signed digitally by the issuing authority, preventing you from installing or updating it. To resolve this issue, you can try to update the drivers directly from the manufacturer’s site. You could also disable driver signing via Group Policy Editor.

Option 1 – Update the device drivers directly from the manufacturer’s site

The reason why you’re getting the “Windows requires a digitally signed driver” error in the first place is that you might have downloaded the drivers from external media. It could also be that the drivers didn’t update for some time now and the issuing authority changed its policies. Thus, you can try to update the drivers straight from the manufacturer’s website and install them. If this option didn’t work, then you’ll have to disable the driver signing or its recognition in Windows 10. Keep in mind that doing so is not advisable if you have to use the concerned driver.

Option 2 – Disable driver signing via Group Policy Editor

  • Tap the Win + R keys to open the Run utility and type “gpedit.msc” in the field and tap Enter to open the Group Policy Editor.
  • After that, navigate to this policy setting: User configuration > Administrative templates > System > Driver installation
  • Next, double click on the “Code signing for device drivers” entry located on the right pane to open its properties where you’ll see the following description:
“This setting determines how the system responds when a user tries to install device driver files that are not digitally signed. It establishes the least secure response permitted on the systems of users in the group. Users can use the System in Control Panel to select a more secure setting, but when this setting is enabled, the system does not implement any setting less secure than the one the setting established. When you enable this setting, use the drop-down box to specify the desired response. “Ignore” directs the system to proceed with the installation even if it includes unsigned files. “Warn” notifies the user that files are not digitally signed and lets the user decide whether to stop or to proceed with the installation and whether to permit unsigned files to be installed. “Warn” is the default. “Block” directs the system to refuse to install unsigned files. As a result, the installation stops, and none of the files in the driver package are installed. To change driver file security without specifying a setting, use System in Control Panel. Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click the Driver Signing button.”
  • Now select the radio button for “Enabled” and select Ignore from the drop-down menu under “When Windows detects a driver file without a digital signature”.
  • Then click on the Apply and OK buttons to save the changes made. This will get rid of the “Windows requires a digitally signed driver” error but take note that this will also make your system less secure.

How to remove ListenToTheRadioNow from your PC

ListenToTheRadioNow is a Browser Extension that allegedly lets you listen to radio from your browser. However, all this extension does is add links to the popular radio stations on your home page. This extension hijacks your home page and changes your default search provides to MyWay. While running it monitors browsing data from your browser, mining information such as website visits, clicked links, and sometimes even personal information. This information is later used to display targeted ads through your browser. Several anti-virus scanners have marked this extension as a possible Browser Hijackers, and due to its data mining nature, it is not recommended to keep it on your computer.

About Browser Hijackers

Browser hijacking is a type of unwanted software, commonly a browser add-on or extension, which then causes modifications in the web browser’s settings. Browser hijackers could do more than just modifying homepages. In most cases, browser hijacking is used for earning ad revenue that comes from forced advert clicks and website visits. Even though it may seem naive, all browser hijackers are dangerous and therefore always regarded as security threats. They don’t just ruin your internet browsers, but browser hijackers could also modify the system registry to make your PC susceptible to other malicious programs.

How you can know whether the browser is hijacked?

There are several symptoms of browser hijacking: 1. home-page is changed 2. new bookmarks pointing to porn websites have been added to your bookmarks 3. the default internet search engine and/or the default web browser settings are altered 4. find new toolbars that you did not add 5. unstoppable flurries of popup ads show up on your PC screen 6. webpages load very slowly and often incomplete 7. you have prohibited entry to certain web pages, for example, the site of an anti-malware software firm like SafeBytes.

So how does a browser hijacker infect a PC

A browser hijacker could be installed on your computer or laptop if you visit an infected website, click on an e-mail attachment, or download something from a file-sharing website. They also come from add-on programs, also referred to as browser helper objects (BHO), browser plug-ins or toolbars. Also, some shareware and freeware can put the hijacker inside your computer through “bundling”. A good example of some popular browser hijackers includes Babylon, Anyprotect, Conduit, SweetPage, DefaultTab, Delta Search, and RocketTab, but the names are regularly changing.

Tips on how to get rid of a browser hijacker

Some hijackers can be removed by uninstalling the freeware they were included with or by eliminating any extension you’ve recently added to your computer. However, most hijacking codes are not very easy to eliminate manually, since they go deeper into your operating system. Furthermore, manual removal expects you to perform several time-consuming and tricky actions that are hard to do for new computer users. Professionals always recommend users to get rid of any malicious software including browser hijacker with an automatic malware removal tool, which is simpler, safer, and faster than the manual removal technique. One of the top tools for correcting browser hijacker malware is SafeBytes Anti-Malware. It can help you eliminate any pre-existing malicious software in your computer and provides you real-time monitoring and protection from the latest internet threats. Employ a PC optimizer along with your anti-malware software to correct various registry problems, remove computer vulnerabilities, and improve your computer overall performance.

Help! Malware Preventing Antivirus Installation And Access To The Internet

All malware is bad, but certain kinds of malware do a lot more damage to your computer than others. Some malware sits in between the computer and the net connection and blocks some or all internet sites that you want to check out. It will also prevent you from installing anything on your system, especially anti-virus applications. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re stuck with a malware infection that is preventing you to download and install the Safebytes Anti-Malware program on your computer. Do as instructed below to get rid of the malware by alternate methods.

Install the anti-malware in Safe Mode

Safe Mode is actually a special, basic version of Windows in which just minimal services are loaded to counteract viruses and other troublesome programs from loading. In the event, the malicious software is set to load automatically when the computer boots, switching to this mode may well prevent it from doing so. To start the computer into Safe Mode, hit the “F8” key on your keyboard just before the Windows logo screen comes up; Or right after normal Windows boot up, run MSConfig, check Safe Boot under Boot tab, and click Apply. Once you’re in Safe Mode, you can attempt to download and install your antivirus software application without the hindrance of the virus. After installation, run the malware scanner to get rid of most standard infections.

Download the security program using an alternate web browser

Some malware mainly targets particular browsers. If this sounds like your case, use another web browser as it could circumvent the virus. If you appear to have a virus attached to Internet Explorer, then switch over to an alternate browser with built-in security features, such as Firefox or Chrome, to download your preferred anti-malware program – Safebytes.

Install and run anti-virus from the Thumb drive

Another solution is to store and operate an anti-malware program entirely from a Pen drive. Do these simple steps to clear up your affected PC using a portable antivirus. 1) Download the anti-malware on a virus-free PC. 2) Insert the USB drive onto the same system. 3) Run the setup program by double-clicking the executable file of the downloaded software, with a .exe file format. 4) Choose the drive letter of the pen drive as the place when the wizard asks you where you would like to install the antivirus. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to complete the installation process. 5) Unplug the pen drive. You may now utilize this portable anti-virus on the affected computer. 6) Double-click the EXE file to open the Safebytes software right from the pen drive. 7) Click the “Scan” button to run a full system scan and remove viruses automatically.

Technical Details and Manual Removal (Advanced Users)

You will likely also want to reset your web browser. Finally, check your hard drive for all of the following and clean your Windows registry manually to get rid of leftover application entries after uninstalls. Please keep in mind that only experienced users should attempt to manually edit the system files because removing any single critical registry entry results in a serious problem or even a system crash. In addition, certain malware is capable of replicating or preventing removal. It is highly recommended that you carry out the removal process in Safe Mode.

DisplayLink in Windows 10 is not working
This post will guide you in what to do if the DisplayLink in Windows 10 is not working. There are several users who reported that their DisplayLink device has stopped working with the Windows 20 Anniversary or the Creators update all of a sudden. According to users, this issue occurs right after they finish installing a big Windows Update like the Anniversary Update or the Creators Update or right when the DisplayLink driver is updated using Windows Update. DisplayLink is a graphics transport technology that allows users to connect to any computer that supports USB or Wi-Fi. Aside from that, it is also an excellent universal docking solution to any platform which makes it a great solution for enabling multiple displays. Thus, it can be quite annoying when DisplayLink suddenly stops working. There really is no actual error message when it happens. The only telltale sign is that all the devices that use the DisplayLink technology will also stop functioning. There could be tons of reasons why DisplayLink stopped working. It could be due to an incompatible driver, or the DisplayLink driver itself is corrupted or is connected to a USB 2.0 port. In addition, the problem could also be due to the Nvidia Share (ShadowPlay) that conflicts with DisplayLink or that the Universal Serial Bus is broken. To resolve the issue, refer to the following options laid out below.

Option 1 – Run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter

As you know, Windows comes with a built-in tool that you can use to troubleshoot the problem with DisplayLink. You can find it in Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot. For further instructions, follow these steps:
  • The first thing you need to do is click on Start and then on the gear-like icon to pull up the window for Settings.
  • After opening Settings, look for the Update and Security option and select it.
  • From there, go to the Troubleshoot option located on the left-hand side of the list.
  • Next, select Hardware and Devices from the list and open the Troubleshooter and run it. Once it is doing its job, wait for it to complete the process and then restart the system.
  • After the system restarts, check if the problem’s now fixed. If not, refer to the next option given below.

Option 2 – Try to uninstall DisplayLink and reconnect the docking station

If the Hardware and Device troubleshooter is of no help, you can try uninstalling DisplayLink and reconnecting the docking station. To do so, follow these steps:
  • Disconnect the docking station or any other device that uses DisplayLink.
  • Tap the Win + R keys to open the Run dialog box.
  • Then type “cpl” and hit Enter to open Programs and Features.
  • From there, look for DisplayLink, right-click on it and click Uninstall.
  • After that, follow the next on-screen instructions that appear on your screen to completely remove DisplayLink from your computer.
  • Once you’ve uninstalled DisplayLink, click this link to download and install DisplayLink again.
  • Now reconnect the docking station as well as other devices that use DisplayLink and follow the next on-screen instructions to reinstall the required drivers in your computer.
  • Restart your computer and then check if DisplayLink is now working fine or not.

Option 3 – Try using a USB 3.0 port

If you are experiencing this issue with DisplayLink with a monitor that you’re trying to connect using DisplayLink, then you have to make sure that you are using a USB 3.0 port. Based on some reports, there are certain monitors that will not work with DisplayLink while connected to a USB 2.0 port since they have insufficient power to run the monitor. Like pointed out earlier, the problem with DisplayLink might have something to do with the Nvidia ShadowPlay. This streaming feature was often reported to crash the DisplayLink monitors which is why you might want to try disabling it for a while to check if it’s really true. Once you’ve disabled Nvidia ShadowPlay, restart your computer and check if your DisplayLink monitor now works.

Option 5 – Reinstall the Universal Serial Bus controller

You can also reinstall the Universal Serial Bus controller to fix DisplayLink since a malfunctioning USB port can sometimes cause issues with DisplayLink.
  • Tap the Win + R keys to open the Run dialog box.
  • Then type “msc” in the field and hit Enter to open the Device Manager.
  • From there, look for the Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand its drop-down menu.
  • Next, right-click on every Host Controller and then click on Uninstall Device.
  • After uninstalling every entry, restart your computer to force your system to reinstall the drivers you’ve just uninstalled.
  • Once your computer has rebooted, wait until the drivers are reinstalled and then try opening DisplayLink again.

Option 5 – Reinstall the Universal Serial Bus controller

You can also try to perform a System Restore as it can also help you fix DisplayLink. You can do this option either by booting into Safe Mode or in System Restore. If you are already in the Advanced Startup Options, just directly select System Restore and proceed with the next steps. And if you have just booted your PC into Safe Mode, refer to the steps below.
  • Tap the Win + R keys to open the Run dialog box.
  • After that, type in “sysdm.cpl” in the field and tap Enter.
  • Next, go to the System Protection tab then click the System Restore button. This will open a new window where you have to select your preferred System Restore point.
  • After that, follow the on-screen instructions to finish the process and then restart your computer and check if the problem is fixed or not.

2 Proven Methods to Fix Regsvr32 Error

What is Regsvr32 Error? - What Is It?

Regsvr32 is basically a command-line utility.

This command is used to register and unregister OLE controls for example the digital link library files and ActiveX controls in the Windows Registry. This command appears as the Regsvr32.exe file and is installed in the Microsoft Windows system file in the %systemroot%System32 folder.

The Regsvr32 command loads the library and tries to call the DllRegister Server and DllUnregister Server. In other words, it helps to register COM-based digital link library files to run different programs on your PC.

However, when the Regsvr32.exe file gets corrupt, you get the Regsvr32 to troubleshoot the error message on your computer screen. It can be displayed in various ways including the following:

“To register a module, you must provide a binary name.”

Error Causes

Generally, Regsvr32.exe becomes corrupt because either the load library, DllRegister Server or DllUnregister Server function fails. This indicates that the dll specified path was missing, incorrect, or couldn’t be found.

Here’s how the error messages are often displayed while registering a dll using Regsvr32.exe:

  • “The command-flag "%1" is not valid. Please review the command usage and try again.”

If this error message is displayed, it typically means that you entered an invalid combination of command-line arguments or switches when calling upon the Regsvr32.exe application.

  • “To register a module, you must provide a binary name.”

The cause of this error message is that you called the Regsvr32.exe function with no modules to register located in the command line arguments.

  • “The module "%1" failed to load.nn Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.nn%2.”
This Regsvr32 error message indicates that Windows had problems with loading the modules that you have identified in the command line.

Further Information and Manual Repair

Here are 2 recommended solutions to fix the Regsvr32 error on your PC:
  1. Re-run the command

    You must re-run the Regsvr32 command from an elevated command prompt. For this, go to the start menu and type Command Prompt in the search box.

    Now right-click the Command Prompt and click the option that says Run as Administrator to run the command on your PC. If it prompts you to enter an administrator password, type the password and then click Allow to run the command.

  2. Register a 32-bit Dll using a 32-bit version of Regsvr32 on a 64-bit version of Windows

    This may sound tricky but it is even simpler than the first solution discussed above. To register a 32-bit DLL using a 32-bit version of Regsvr32 on a 64-bit version of Windows, open an elevated command prompt.

    After it’s opened, if you see the 32-bit DLL is located in the following path: %systemroot%System32 folder, move it to %systemroot%SysWoW64 folder. Once you change paths, run this command: %systemroot%SysWoW64regsvr32 <full path of the DLL>

Try following these 2 recommended solutions to immediately fix and repair this error on your computer.

The solutions should eliminate the occurrence of error messages such as “To register a module, you must provide a binary name.” It is so easy and effective and you can do it on your own without calling over a professional.
