System performance gets affected

In this error, only the black screen of the PC's desktop will be observable and the rest of the programs and files will not be present in the system. It can be confusing and the users generally waste time searching for the so-called 'lost' programs. The programs are very much present on the PC but due to some troubles, the system is not able to discover them.

But if the problem still persists, it is wise to make use of registry cleaner software as a final precaution. Such software can be used for deleting all the damaged entries from the registry to get rid of the problem of Windows 7 black screen error popping up at any time. Go to 'Start', type 'regedit' and do the necessary registry corrections in your Windows registry. But experts do not advise you to manually solve these issues as there is a possibility for damaging your critical files and programs applications.
