Hey Homer!

Basically this message always occurs at the time when you try to install the drivers which, in windows are un-supported by Microsoft.

It warns you that this driver is dangerous as it is not supported by the Microsoft.

If you click on "Continue Anyway" button, it will install your driver without any problem.

If you want your computer not to show this warning message for the next time, follow these steps:

1. Open properties by pressing right click on My computer.

2. Go to Hardware tab and click on it.

3. Here in Drivers section you can see a button "Driver Signing". Click on this button.

4. It will open Driver Signing Option. Select "Ignore – Install the software anyway and don’t ask for my approval" option and click Ok button.

Next time you will not see this message if you try to install the drivers that are not supported or recognized by the Microsoft.

Thanks
