Windows 7: Latest Windows updates causing problems with video...

Latest Windows updates causing problems with video...

I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and so have also had to put up with all the latest updates. The problem is that after installing them, something happens to my screen resolution (all icons and text are enormous). I have already done two system restores to fix this, but after each one the updates are once again installed and so the situation reoccurs.

I should also add (since the two things are surely connected) that for a while now I've been getting messages regarding my video card drivers. I have checked with AMD, and my drivers are up to date. Yet yesterday and the day before I also got a Blue Screen of Death.

I've installed WhoCrashed, but this won't work since dumps are not enabled(or something similar!!).

I see that my laptop is ready to install the updates again...

Is your resolution changing perhaps after it is installing a graphics update, also could be your scaling?

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

Please post the log files produced using the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions I'll ask a specialist to drop in and have a look.
