Windows 7 isnt so strict with this driver signature verification thing so dont worry. go ahead and install your drivers

You are probably using Windows 7 Home Premium which has a lot of restrictions on certain features of the OS (I have same problem; right click computer icon and click "properties" then check the windows version to confirm).

I tried searching using *.msc and got the gpedit.msc, however when I opened it, it reported error that it could not add snap-ins to the console.

In sum, I believe the restrictions on 'Home basic and Home Premium' prevents the usage of the group policy editor
