Win 7 PC freezing everytime installing Ralink RT61 Driver

Hello
I just reinstalled my advent sq9204 pc with windows 7 32-bit. But when it was complete there was a red cross of the wireless networks icon. When I checked Device Manager, it came up as Network Controller with a yellow triangle. I went onto the manufacturers website to download the driver for the wireless pci card, and when I came to install it my entire computer froze, with the only way it being able to work again was system restoring it via startup repair.
I downloaded the driver from a different website for ralink rt61 turbo wireless lan card but the same thing happened.

I tried this forum RT2561 and similar ones (RT2560, RT2500 etc) and tried the top post link and also the second post oldest driver but both do the same thing.

Please can anyone advise.
