Help me install these drivers without them messing up my games

Last time I installed these two updates:

My pc looked badly and most of my games stopped working.

I didn't know what to do so I did a system restore.

However it has kept bugging me a bit that I didn't resolve this issue.

So what to do?

If you are using the most current version of both drivers ( Provided by the manufacturor) you can actually hide these updates and ignore them.

Windows provides these updates so that your system will work from a fresh start, there is no reason to install them otherwise as they can cause conflict issues / BSODS or other issues.
