A Windows optional update has messed up my screen, help

This was an option update that i accidently installed without knowing what it was,

Intel Corporation - Display - Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family

It has messed up my resolution and i can no longer fit it to how i want, there are only 2 different screen resolutions i can use. Also, i cannot run applications such as YouCam that came with my Laptop + windows 7 beause i "do not have the VGA software" or something :/

I go to device manager and uninstall this, but everytime i turn on my laptop again, the screen resolution is still messed up and then the driver will install itself again.

I find this really annoying how i cant have my screen resolution back

I really hope someone can help :)

THanks in advance

If you're "un-installing" the driver, you could try "rolling back" the driver.

Maybe this will give you the result you need.

You may want to move to the newer driver eventually, so hopefully you can find a more permanent solution.

After you roll it back, hide it from WU
