I am trying to get core isolation memory integrity turned on in Windows 10 working since Windows 11 supposedly requires it and I am having a lot of trouble with incompatible drivers .I have 13 of them, 5 from Logitech alone, Realteck, Western Digital and others and I am finding it impossible to delete them. Most are from software long deleted. Does the Memory Integrity scan only look for drivers that are installed or at all drivers in windows. I have turned off several in Autoruns and they still appear in the list after a reboot. Several belong to old Logitech gaming software which I have uninstalled but they are still there. What is window 11 going to do when it trys to install in this situation; will it fail or just leave memory integrity turned off? Getting rid of these drivers is turning out to be entirely too much work. If the software that used the drivers is gone or you don't care about it, what happens if you just delete the driver file? I may continue to look for updated files, but if even one driver remains the memory integrity is not going to work.

I'm disappointed that there is no reply after 73 views. Surely everyone with an old but eligible computer who will want to upgrade to windows 11 will have this problem since so many companies write sloppy code and inadequate uninstall programs. I did fine an artice on drivethelife.com by Bessie Shaw which gives instruction for removing drivers when the standard methods fail. (no uninstall program, no entry in device manager that can be found) Which reminds me; why can't Microsoft make it possible to search for a driver name in device manager? Mrs. Shaw's instructions show how to find the drivers in system 32/drivers, the backup files in system32/driverstore/repoitory and change the ownership and permissions to allow you to delete these drivers and instructions how to find and delete the registry entries for these drivers. I have moved the drivers and backups to another folder and there are no incompatible drivers listed in the memory integrity scan. I have not done the registry changes yet; afraid to. Why can't Microsoft or somebody else write a program to automate this

Dear Schabelf,
I've just installed Win 11 succesfully with two incompatible drivers, one from Logitech and the other from Saitek. You can upgrade to Win 11 with memory integrity off, assuming your computer meets the other requirements.
