Anything that claims to be a driver scanner is either malware or just plain rubbish!

Likely spyware rolled into the installer download. After Malwarebytes, install SUPERAntiSpyware.com - Downloads, update and run a full scan. Then replace your AV with Microsoft Security Essentials and run a full scan with it.

Once it's clean run SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot to repair any damaged System files, try starting Win7, or if necessary boot into installer again to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times.

If it still won't start continue with the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start . If it starts and shows any problems go over the install with Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Keep running MSE, Malwarebytes and SAS until they report no infection. If one persists post it back in our Security forum for specialized help.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command, repeatedly if necessary, report back results.

Often serious infection cannot every be cleaned up and requires you rescue your files to be scanned repeatedly before reimportation, then booting installer to do a Custom install, deleting all partitions during Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7.

Other tips for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you have the original factory preinstall larded with bloatware then I'd be doing that already.
