    Driver scanner or driver cleaner? Try restoring Windows to an earlier time before using the driver program

    So can you perform a system restore to an earlier date?

    Forcibly shut down your computer, start it up and keep hitting the F8 key till you see an option to load the Windows Safe Mode.

    Load the Windows Safe Mode with Networking option, once at the desktop, try restoring your computer to a point in time before you installed Driver Scanner.

    If that doesn't help, use this program to remove all traces of the driver updates you installed recently.

    Once you've done this, you should be able to restart and use your computer normally.


    BTW, here's some info on the error itself:
