    How to Verify if System Files and Drivers are Digitally Signed in Windows

    information   Information
    To help maintain the integrity of your system, critical files have been digitally signed so that any changes to these files can be quickly detected.

    Unsigned drivers donít necessarily have to be problematic or malicious, but it does make sense to check the system for those so you can uninstall them or find a updated signed driver.

    This tutorial will show you how to check for and find any system files and drivers that are not digitally signed in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
    Note   Note
    File Signature Verification (sigverif.exe) saves its results to the log file below.

    C:\Users\Public\Documents\SIGVERIF.TXT

    Here's How:

    1. Press the Win+R keys to open Run, type sigverif into Run, and click/tap on OK to open "File Signature Verification".

    2. Click/tap on Start. (see screenshot below)
    Tip   Tip
    If you like, you can click/tap on Advanced first to change the logging settings to what you want instead of the default settings, and click/tap on OK to apply.

    4. When finished, all unsigned system files and drivers are displayed in the results with its file name, full folder path, modified, file type, and version details. (see screenshot below)
    Note   Note
    Depending on the results, you may want to keep the file(s), search for an updated version of it, or remove it from being started with Windows.

    Hello Firas,

    Since those are Windows system files, running a SFC /SCANNOW command may be able to repair them.

    Run SFC Command in Windows 10

    SFC shows that it repaired some of your system files.

    Do you still get the same report from "File Signature Verification" after running it again?

    If it helps, the files reported are from Microsoft Visual Studio. If you still have them reported as not signed, then you might see if installing the latest version of your Microsoft Visual Studio may sort it.
