Microsoft have made it increasingly more difficult for honest Vista x64 users to freely use their paid for software. They are enforcing driver signature and integrity checks which are limiting us from loading software and patches that we desire.

Over the last few weeks I've investigated the current methods for disabling integrity and driver checks will provide you with the means to disable these checks.
Lets begin.

Firstly, ensure the following windows updates have been uninstalled.

KB932596
KB938979
KB938194

Secondly, once the updates are removed, reboot and login with administrative priveledges.
Open command prompt (cmd.exe) and type:

bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit /set oslnointegritychecks on

Finally, update your Windows Group Policy to ignore Driver Installation signed driver checks.
Hold Windows-Key & R. Type GPEDIT.MSC. Select Configuration - Administrative Templates - System - Driver Installation.
Select the Code signing for drivers key and enable it. Then specify the Ignore parameter.
Click OK.

Restart windows.

This will work and bypass all Vista x64 driver integrity and signature enforcements.
