Windows Vista Update caused ATI driver issue,meaning Laptop freezes

I deferred applying the Vista SP1 update and then last week allowed the update service to apply an update (I think it was a cumulatice media centre update). My laptop then began to freeze, and I received a message saying that an ATI driver was causing and issue. After attempting to roll back to a new system restore point, logging into safe mode etc, I applied the SP1 update. Things 'appear to be OK' at the moment, but how can I analyse if a future freeze is likely?

You can't if you setup automatically update thru Microsoft. You might want updates but setup automatic download and manual install, and that is what I do. Always check or research first before applying update patchs .... to prevent such issue from happening.
