    Beware!! Windows 7 Driver Verifier


    I decided to run a driver verification check on windows 7 using the built-in Driver Verifier...

    The worst possible decision I have made...First the Comp blue-screened multiple times and got stuck into a reboot loop, I was eventually able to access the desktop however every last driver was malfunctioning or missing

    All I can say is System Restore saved the day once again and was able to restore the system

    Just thought I might give everyone a heads up...DO NOT run Driver Verifier

    Thanks you for the warning. I'll rely on my own research for driver verification.

    I tried running it a few times with different options, each time Windows 7 got stuck into a reboot loop and deregistered all drivers
