update has broke one of my pc's

Last year I got a mid range custom built pc to use as a spare to test things before putting them on my games rig. I opted for a cheapish card , a gt 730 , I only wanted something a bit better than the integrated card. When I went onto nvidea for a driver update the card was not even listed but due to family problems at the time I did not question the builders.

Fast forward to today I did windows update , it said it was downloading a g card driver and the number for it looked like an ip address.

I now have these problems , my start button no longer works so I have to use task manager to do shutdown bottom right of screen , search box opens when it feels like it , and hears a big mystery , I know I had about 100 windows updates but only the last 15 are showing.

Answers on a post card please and the winner gets a big hug !

Common for windows updates to replace graphics drivers with windows generic drivers

The card is listed in the driver search under Geforce / Geforce 700 series / Geforce GT 730
