The Smart Card service runs as NT AUTHORITY\LocalService in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Smart Card fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the SCardSvr service has failed to start.
Smart Card will not start, if the Plug and Play service is stopped or disabled.
