With Windows 7 it's advisable to skip the download of the driver installation files at this point (Windows 7 searches online for drivers at first), because on the one hand the installation process will be delayed significantly, on the other hand there are problems with the driver version 5.95 currently delivered by Windows Update.
(Update: In the meantime new drivers version 6.23 are available via Windows Update, which don't show any problems anymore).
A Query dialog follows:
