Catalyst 15.7.1 causes BSOD

All my problems began when I did a clean install of the AMD HD 7700 video graphics driver at 8/8/2015.

At first I would get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) with variable symptoms from Windows 7 (64bit) regardless of what program was opened.

On 8/9/2015 I tried to do a full uninstall of the video driver because AMD had released an updated version. From control panel AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 was completely removed.

 

However, I cannot complete this process because I have only a black screen every time I reboot/turn on the computer.

I have tried multiple Desktop monitors and Windows boot up drives, but nothing is displayed on the screen.

 

The graphics card was purchased in February of 2015 and is kept in a very cool ventilated case.

 

Why would a major company make such a harmful software for their consumers?
