What is latest released windows update?

Hello dear windows 7 community.

I have some hardware related problems, I believe. But today I after I acquired new mob, cpu and psu. I started to doubt myself.
Here is a small overview:
OS: Win 7 x64bit freshly installed today for... 3 time(?).
CPU: Q9400
MOB: Asus P5Q Pro Turbo
RAM: 8gb of Kingston DDR2 HyperX PC8500 4GB KITx2
Graphics: XFX 5970 BE

All the latest available drivers and windows updates.
If I have an areo theme activated, launching Bad Company 2 may fail.
If I switch to windows basic and try starting Bad Company 2 it works just fine.
Alas for no reason what so ever when I tried entering uPlay (from ubisoft), I got a bsod regarding atikmpag.sys

So after a lot of google searches and thinking I came up with a theory, what if my problems are related to a windows update?
Since they started not so long ago, it must be one of the recent updates(?), but I have absolutely no clue which one it might be.

What do you mean with that Windows updates "started not so long ago"? Windows Update has been working since the day 1 of the early test versions, updates rolling out and being installed constantly since that.

Your problem is most probably non-working video drivers, at least that atikmpag.sys is a video driver file, and as such it seems your BSOD issues have nothing to do with Windows Update.

Hmmm... I see.
Let me elaborate.

I did a fresh install of windows, once you run update it installs a whole bunch of stuff. But that stuff didnt come out at day 1, so am looking for the update released not so long ago.
Aka what is the name of win7 update that was released in the past 2 weeks.

windows update often updates hardware drivers.

this has been known to cause problems. it has 'killed' my network card in the past.

it's always best to check which updates you want to install, rather than go fully auto.

it's much better to get driver updates straight from the hardware manufacturer.

uninstall your video card driver from device manager, then download catalyst 10.6 drivers from amd/ati.

Sigh, another misunderstanding.

I got the right drivers, both for video card and motherboard downloaded from their respective websites.
What I am talking about is Update for Windows.
What kind of update have been released past 2 weeks fro windows. The ones you can see if you go into Installed Updates.

Hmm, I see.
If you install all updates on same day, then all of them are listed with same date. Would have been darn useful if there was a "released date" for updates.
But anyway, thanks for the input.
I uninstalled a couple of updates that have with stability

KB:974431,975496,977074,982519.

It seem to run better, but its too early to say. For some reason your list is that much bigger then my.

Thanks again for the input.
