I'm not sure that driver updates get undone that way anyway.

WU is not the best newsgroup to try to resolve this in
but FWIW I think you should be able to boot some kind
of command console, fix the problem and then recover your OS.
A related alternative would be booting with options which say
that you only want to use VGA mode. You might even already
have that option available in your boot list. Etc.
