You can try the following driver Download Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows 7/8.1* [15.36], which is the latest and I would recommend installing it with this method How to Manually Install a Graphics Driver in Windows 7*.

Thank you for your response. I came here to report that I got around the issue. First, I uninstalled the "customized driver" using "add or remove programs". When the computer rebooted, Windows replaced the driver with a previously installed driver. I uninstalled that and selected the option to delete the driver. After that, Windows replaced the driver with a generic driver, operating in 640x480. I rebooted again, then installed the latest driver from the intel website, which is 188.8.131.5214. It seems to be fine.
After doing this, I ran the intel driver update utility. Strangely, it's recommending what appears to be a much older driver, along with the one that's installed.
The 15.33 driver doesn't show up on the Intel driver download website, even if I select windows 8.1 or windows 10.
darylm, I am glad to hear that you were able to install the driver.
The issue you pointed out with the Intel® Driver Update Utility is under investigation, an upcoming version will show some improvement. We are working on additional fixes, which we hope to have ready soon.
