Windows 7: Computer Comes On and then turns black and comes back on

Computer Comes On and then turns black and comes back on

Hi you guys I'm having horrible computer problems. This happened "after" I loaded up the new driver booster. I've used Advanced System Care for a few years and I just would hate not to have it. I upgraded to the Advanced System Care 7 and it asked if I wanted the driver booster. I did and it loaded up a couple of new drivers. After that my computer started locking up on me. Then I turned it off and turned the computer back on and it came on just fine but after the welcome the screen goes black for about a minute, then comes back on to windows. It takes a long long time, like fifteen minutes to get everything warmed up so that I can go on the web. My web is plenty fast, plenty, but it locks up if I am more than one page. I use to be able to have three or four tabs open doing many things this is driving me nuts. I've tried uninstalling the driver booster and also I've done a system restore and other things trying to fix this. I don't know what driver it installed and I'm no expert on computers I don't know what to do.

I was excited to try IOBIT's Driver Booster; so I launched it right away. Boy did I end up regretting my decision! It was immediately obvious that that my monitor resolution was messed up as desktop items were overblown in size. But worse than that is the fact that I could no longer access the Internet at all! System restore did nothing to correct these issues.

Fortunately, IOBIT does provide great support for their products. It took over an hour on the phone with an IOBIT technician, using a neighbors computer, and allowing him to access to her desktop in order to download the proper drivers for my laptop. The drivers were saved to an external storage drive and then downloaded to my computer. So, BEWARE ...before you decide to use Driver MAY experience similar problems or even possibly others!
