After I installed MS wireless keyboard and mouse and associated software, I started getting this annoying message titled "Hardware installation" telling me the software I am trying to install did not pass the XP logo tests.

The software is for "HID non-user input data filter" and I have two options Continue anyway or stop installation. Now, if I try to continue the installation fails, if stop installing another message pops up with a little mouse logo and the whole process repeats itself. after I am done with that message a third dialog appears.

This is happening every time I boot up my PC (a desktop), I tried following an advice I found in some forum and download windows update for ID non-user input data filter, but that installation failed as well.

The thing is, that both keyboard and mouse are working fine

Is there anyway to get past these dialogs ?

You can disable the driver signing warnings easily:

  • Right-click My Computer and select Properties
  • On the Hardware tab, click Driver Signing under Drivers
  • Select Ignore – Install the software anyway and don’t ask for my approval then hit OK

that will take care of the warning alright (funny that even MS' very own drivers fail the test :), the real issue, however, seems to be: why has the driver to be installed at each boot? – Molly7244 Dec 13 '09 at 20:40
Well his ultimate question was "is there anyway to get past these dialogs ?". I think it's been addressed. For whatever reason, XP may not see that he already installed driver software, and then it tries to install it's own. – John T Dec 13 '09 at 20:56
