There are a couple of things that you can try:

1. Rollback the driver that was installed by Windows Updates - assuming a driver was installed from Windows updates: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/remove-update#1TC=windows-7

2. Try and find an approved driver from the OEM and install that instead. So, for example, if you use Dell computers - you can go to their support site and grab the latest driver for your machine from them. These drivers are approved for your particular model and hardware and should be installed in place of drivers released by nVidia.

i use Dell Kace to push out the latest drivers and all the PC's affected are dell. i am trying to narrow down the patch that's causing the error but so far no-one has reported any issues

you can also do a system restore, and check for the affected program
once the update is known that causes it, mark it for not updating
