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?

  • 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.
