Selective display of Windows 7 updates

How can I remove optional items from the list of windows updates when I check for Windows updates (windows 7 Professional 64 bit).
I am shown 3 optional updates, all of which download ok but when the PC is re-started a Blue screen of Death results and I have to do a system restore to get back to a bootable system. One of the updates is an update to the NVIDIA driver and if I update the driver from the device manager the Blue Screen of Death still results upon re-starting the system.
I would seek a way to somehow mark the update so it is no longer displayed as an optional update when I check for Windows updates.

Just right click on those Updates and select Hide.

Yes. When you see the update, you must click on it as if you were going to run it. In the next screen where you would check it to run, right click and Hide as Ramin suggests.

You can always unhide later if a better driver comes out.
