Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

GPU Driver Version: Build

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download win64_15.40.45.5126.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29474/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-40-?product=85212
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29474/a08/win64_15.40.45.5126.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Since you have an old GPU you might need to turn off Disk Shader Cache and Accurate Multiplication(it is in the Advanced tab).

It is recommended to upgrade to Windows 10 because Windows 7 lost new security updates since January.
