  1. I just tried to install GHUB for the first time on Windows 7 Pro and an error window with this message appears:
    Windows requires a digitally signed driver
    A recently installed program tried to install an unsigned driver. This version of Windows requires all drivers to have a valid digital signature. the driver is unavailable and the program that uses this driver might not work correctly. Uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publisher’s support website to get a digitally signed driver.
    Driver: Logitech G Driver
    Service: LGHUB Core Temperature Service
    Publisher: Logitech
    Location: C:\Program Fil…\logi_core_temp.sys
    I still experience this problem even after uninstalling and reinstalling the GHUB software.

      1. This is not recommended because a hacker could have introduced a virus into this driver file. Having a digital signature helps to prevent this. So unless Logitech can at least provide a MD5 checksum value, for example, as confirmation, I would not trust installing this file onto my computer.

        1. As per my recommendation, Logitech is a branded company and we should trust it. If you don’t trust Logitech company, then you should not install its program on your computer.

  2. when Im clicking on install its still saying initializing long time and I did all what is there saying please help someone

    1. Have you tried all the mentioned steps? If you have already tried then I suggest that you create a new user profile account and then try to install it again. Also make sure your antivirus’ firewall is not stopping GHUB installer from reaching it to the website for installation. Try both of these steps and do let me know the result of that.

    1. Same issue continuing for me . I have used this program all the time until today . I uninstalled and now it will not reinstall.

        1. So here is where I am with it . I can download the lghub_installer.exe When I try to launch, even with admin perms, it does nothing. However, if I go check my CrashDumps folder in my user>local, there will be the installer.exe there with random numbers at the end. I can’t find anything about it

        2. I’ll try again since they deleted my other post . When I try to launch the installer, lghub_installer.exe, nothing happens except the installer is sent to my CrashDumps folder . No idea why this is happening.
