Windows 10 implements different security mechanisms focused on protecting the integrity of both system parameters and user information and one of these ways is by using the signature of the drivers. Remember that the controllers are essential for the components to work in the correct way..
With this signed driver protection feature, the system only loads drivers that have been signed by Microsoft. In case it is necessary to install unofficial drivers, old unsigned drivers or own drivers, it is necessary to disable the driver signing function so that there are no conflicts. But let's remember again that it is a security method to prevent some type of malware from being added to the Windows 10 kernel.
So if for administrative tasks it is required to deactivate the signature of the drivers, we will see how to do it step by step..
