I've been looking around Google trying to find a definitive answer for this but every site that recommends a certain site for downloads is said to be unsafe upon further research. I've disabled the device signature thingy through restarting the computer but I'd like to get the drivers for the PS3 controller and be able to edit which buttons do which.

 

Anyone know what to do?

It tells me to download the official XBOX 360 Driver but when I search for it, there's only a Windows 7 version for it whilst I run Windows 10.

Windows 10 has native drivers for the Xbox 360 controller. There is nothing to install.

 

http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-on-windows/accessories/xbox-controller-for-windows-setup

Set up a wired controller on Windows 10

Follow these steps to install your Xbox 360 wired controller on Windows 10:

  1. Plug the Xbox 360 controller into any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on the computer.
  2. Windows 10 will automatically install drivers for your controller, so you won't have to download or install software other than Windows 10 updates. Once you see the pop-up notification that the drivers have been installed, you can use your controller.
  3. Open a game or the Xbox app and test your controller by pressing a button, pulling a trigger, or moving a stick on the controller.

Edit: If your budget allows the best option would be to purchase a Xbox 360 wired controller as it's plug and play.

No point in getting an XBOX controller if I'm barely going to use it.
