Use the Windows Update options in Settings to view Windows Update history, and explore a tool that lets you hide specific updates if you know that they are problematic. You can use the same tool to unhide and install them if you change your mind. Use System Restore to roll back Windows Updates when problems occur, or Device Manager to roll back driver updates.
