Spooky2 is continually being improved for your benefit, bringing higher quality frequency treatments.

Along with the update, we’ve received some feedback from Spooky2 customers failing to install Generator Drivers on Windows7 Operation Systems. Thanks for Scott Markowitz’s sharing. Scott contacted Driver Technical Company and got a solution for this technical issue. Here is his instruction for Windows7 users:

Some 64-bit Windows7 Operation systems are unable to install the latest drivers (after August 2018). Users will see a yellow exclamation point when viewing Device Manager:

The problem is caused by either an outdated Windows7, or if the latest Security Update is not installed.

“Now, SHA-1 is a legacy cryptographic hash that is no longer secure, Microsoft is weeding out the SHA-1 certificate and migration to SHA-2, also to warn consumers about the risk of using an SHA-1 certificate. All digital certificates of drivers after August 2018, have been added the sha-2 (SHA256) algorithm, resulting some outdated Windows 7 do not recognize sha-2certificate.”
