This was downloaded and installed by Windows 10 when I plugged into the ESP8266 ESP-12-x
Use Driver Manager to update the driver and force it to use the internet. produced the driver and it has been signed by Microsoft.
DO NOT download drivers from sites on the internet besides Microsoft or the manufacture, fair warning.
