Most likely a card reader so look for those on your PC's model downloads page for that first.

How is overall performance? Monitor it closely between each program install. Keep a Clean Boot as discussed in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

System Restore to before the problem began again, then install these drivers or programs one at a time with time in between each to see if the problem resurfaces. I just explained this to you before as the way to pinpoint which program or driver is causing the issue.

You should also not be installing any drivers other than those missing in Device Manager after all Windows Updates are completed. This is not XP. Win7 is a driver-complete OS.
