Windows 7: Improper Shut down Problems

Improper Shut down Problems

A few days ago my Computer was Improperly shut down. after i rebooted my PC it started telling me that the AMD Catalyst was unable to start along with a few others. but the big stinker is that i can't play any of my games like world of warcraft and other MMOs i have. i click on the game icon and the client will pop up but than a few secs later it goes away and closes out. So pretty much all my games now do pretty much the same thing. and some games when i try to start them i just get a pop up saying that the game has stopped working and needs to shut down. Now i tried to do a restore to an earlier date but the restore was also not working right and each time it would say that it was unsucessful and did not change anything. i really don't want to do a factory recovery. so if there are any quick fixes for this that would be Awesome

thank you. Acelee
