Uninstalls for most updates are either in Add/Remove programs, and the head of the Windows Folder.

If its the windows updates though you'll want to keep them, some nasy security holes were fixed. What graphics card do you use (if you don't know open the start menu, click run and type dxdiag. It says under display) and have you tried reinstalling the drivers?

If this started happening right after an update, hang the security flaw, let's get the computer running right again and this is the 4th post I have seen about this issue. In the other cases no amount of driver reinstalling has fixed the issue....
