  1. Smart card subsystem

    I'm running Windows 10 and use a smart card reader to update a security card frequently. Lately when I plug the reader in I get an error message saying "Unable to connect to smartcard subsystem" . The tech support for the card service says this occurred during a Windows update. Thoughts? Help.

    Connect a smart card

    Thank you Yasir; I read the content in the link provided; the problem I have now is not to ask for smart card when log on but to connect a smart card when update applications. Do you have a suggestion for that?
