Windows 7: This driver can't release to failure

Windows 7 Professional 32 & 64bit
This driver can't release to failure

Hi guys,

I'm getting the error mentioned in the title whenever my windows 7 ultimate 64 bit goes pass the Welcome screen.

All I get is a black screen with that error, and then once I press OK it'll go into the desktop. It seems to get stuck in the welcome screen for a bit longer than usual if the error appears.

Any idea what may cause this?
