Windows Security popup on driver install

I have a driver which is signed by "Microsoft Windows Component Publisher" that I install using its inf file.

I have checked
Do not prompt the user to connect the device to the computer
Install unsigned driver packages and driver packages that have missing files

But still windows security prompts the user during a quiet, no-UI installation if he wants to install the driver or not.

How can I avoid this?

I think that might be happening because the driver is not signed.

Although we can install it, Windows will popup to make sure the user is ok with doing so.

I keep getting a popup to approve a driver installation from Microsoft but has a certificate error because the certificate is expired
