I have frequently seen, things going wrong (blue screen) after updating device drivers from the Windows update website.
That's why you better install one device driver update at a time.
If the new driver is giving a BSOD (Bleu Screen Of Death), boot in safe mode (press F8 at reboot), Control Panel, System, tab Hardware, button Device Manager, right click the updated hardware, select Properties, tab Driver, button Roll Back Driver.
After you installed the high priority critical updates, restart Windows and visit the Windows Update website again.
These updates can be massive, especially if service pack 3 is not installed yet.
