Your Windows 7 operating system attempts to keep your system free from danger, such as malicious code or programs. One of the ways it accomplishes this is through requiring a digital signature from software when it is downloaded onto your system. This requirement may inhibit you from downloading some software. Fortunately, you can disable the digital signature verification in a few short minutes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Internet Explorer 8.

  2. 2

    Click "Tools" in the main menu bar. Scroll down and click "Internet Properties," and then click the "Advanced" tab.

  3. 3

    Remove the check mark next to "Check for Signatures on Downloaded Programs" under "Security." Click the "OK" button. Restart your browser.
