It has been  quite some time since I have had any issues but I have another one you may possibly assist me with...
It has to to with my USB Mass Storage device that shows a code 52 not digitally signed. Been all over the web. What a mess of suggestions! Tried updated everything, Deleted and reinstalled....still the same problem. Checked Windows and HP (sigh) still no solution. 
Please do you have any solutions or good advise?

You can disable the "Driver Signature Enforcement" rule on Windows to make it install non-signed drivers without any complain. If hamluis' solution doesn't work, we can try this one after.
