Screen resolution isn't fitting screen after Windows  Updates

We have several PC's that we manually had to do updates on. Some only had 38 that were recommended, some had many more. These all have the capability to hook to a projector that is 4:3. The 22" LCD's default at high widescreen resolution. So, to fit the projector, we temporarily set them to 1024x768 and connect. After all of these updates, this is what we are getting.

Is there any alternative than spending countless hours uninstalling them one by one?

Odd this was after doing many Windows updates. I assumed this would give me a better driver if any new one at all. I did have to get the specific driver for the graphics. Problem solved.
