Windows 7: Reporting an incorrect update

Reporting an incorrect update

How do I tell MS that their optional update is wrong? My home made Windows 7 Home Premium machine upgraded from XP PRO was running great until I installed an optional upgrade - for ATI HD 2600 (installed on my PC) as listed on the Windows update site. Restarting the PC failed. A DOS screen indicted an addition to the Autoexec.bat that was applicable ONLY to the HD 2400 series. System Restore failed. Fortunately I had an Acronis Home image that returned my machine to a working shape.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

No need to tell anyone anything. Set update to notify and you will install. When you get that wrong update, right click and set to hide. I have mine set to notify. I do not want someone else to decide what goes into my computer.
