How to disable SmartCard login
Up till the last patch tuesday I had successfully disabled the "Insert Smartcard" login option on my win7 x64 laptop. Its been running like this for over a year. After the last set of updates it returned to my login screen.
I've tried editing the regisrty and disabling the smartcard provider. Yet it still remains a login option.
I've disbaled the smartcard in the group policies as a logon option. Yet it still remains.
I've disabled the smartcard service and while this fixes it in the current session when the machine is reboot the service is reset to automatic (after I set it to manual).
There seems to be no manner in which I can get rid of the opton.
Any suggestions please.

Navigate to Services.msc and check the settings for the smartcard service (try manual).
I am assuming you have tried that?
Have you also tried updating your drivers for your laptop? Especially the drivers dealing with mouse and keyboard and other peripherals?
Do you have factory bloatware that offers the smartcard option listed in add/remove programs?
