Windows 7: Can't install display driver "configuration registry database corrupt"

08 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Can't install display driver "configuration registry database corrupt"

Acer E1-571: Windows 8.1, 2.4 GHz Intel i3, 8 GB ram, Intel HD 4000

So I recently recovered my computer from corrupt display drivers by booting into safe mode and uninstalling the bad drivers. So Windows is working good as ever except the fact that I have no official drivers installed. So I downloaded the latest drivers from the Intel website and when I try to install the drivers from Device Manager it gives me an error saying the "configuration registry database" is corrupt. I tried running the installer from safe mode and even tried older drivers to no avail. I also backed up my registry and ran Ccleaner on it. Is there anything else I can do? I sadly don't have any restore points for it. Thanks in advance.
