Windows 7: Windows Freezes semi-frequently on Login after Catalyst Update

Windows Freezes semi-frequently on Login after Catalyst Update

So I'm in a bind at the moment. On Sunday, after attempting to run Dragon Age : Inquisition, I had realized that I never updated my GPU drivers since 2012 (Catalyst 10.12).
First attempt at installation led to a crash and black screen. Subsequent attempts to uninstall via Catalyst Installation Manager (via Control Panel/Programs) were unsuccessful (got several "Error applying transforms" msg boxes).

I then downloaded Display Driver Utility to the driver and after unsuccessfully installing 15.7 which resulted in my computer freezing on the login screen (or alternatively, black screen with cursor), removing the Intel HD4000, removing 15.7 and installing 14.12, uninstalling 14.12 with the occasional bouts not being able to boot past login in Safe Mode. I realized I had 4 Windows updates I never installed.
They are (KB3064209), (KB2901983), (KB3048761), and a Intel Graphics update. After installation of the above updates, I was able to log in.

This evening however, I suffered two freezes and a failed safe mode boot before being able to get past the login screen again. I'm honestly pretty sure the reason for these freezes are my drivers, but I'm boggled on how to fix this w/o reverting to by 10.12 drivers.

Attached is the DxDiag.
