Each time when I put on a card on a reader, I see the message about driver installation for a card. I have Windows 7.


This is a feature of Windows 7. It is called Smartcard Plug and Play. Check how to disable it. Scroll down to “Disable Smart Card Plug and Play through Group Policy for managed computers”.
