Windows 7: Installed Graphics Driver -> Failed Startups

Installed Graphics Driver -> Failed Startups

About a week ago I posted a topic describing a startup issue I was suffering from.
Today, I reinstalled Windows and my problems seemed to have been fixed. My unit was starting up fine and the issue I was having for months was not happening at all. Until I installed the latest driver for my Graphics card from Nvidia.
Drivers | GeForce

After this was installed, it asked to restart the computer. When it did, once again (for the first time since reinstalling Windows), the computer froze during the Starting Windows screen, my screen went blank and I was forced to do a system restore. What's going on? Is my GPU messed up, or should I try a different driver?

Stay with the driver Win 7 provides, either natively during install or via Windows Update.
