Heh, don't get me started on Windows video drivers - Windows Update recommended I install updated ATi drivers like a year ago, and it made my PC lock up under heavy CPU load. Had to use System Restore to back it out, and have been too scared to update video drivers since. I'm due for a brand new PC with Windows 7 x64 - here's hoping it has stable video drivers.
