Check the compatibility of the Drivers sweeper with windows Vista. Since it appears as the drivers sweeper which you have installed on your system is not compatible with your system. Try to install a version which is compatible or i would also suggest you to install it in the compatibility mode for windows XP.

It appears as your system have got corrupted and hence you need to install the application once again on your system. So remove the application first either with the help of windows uninstaller or simply uninstalling it then download it and install it again on your system. hope this will help you.

Use the safe mode and check whether the program runs absolutely fine in the safe mode. The this clearly indicates that the application is intact and you have some other issue. It may be due to the drivers try installing another drivers may be the driver which you are uninstalling is not supported.
