The answer is to STOP trying to install new drivers. You don't need them for that card.

But shouldn't it show I have the latest drivers?  I have installed the latest drivers from the site (the legacy one)

It's controlled by a few registry keys that don't always get updated. If you know you have the latest drivers, then you don't need to listen to some auto update security hole do you?
