Ever since the last driver update about a week ago, my primary games, MW3 and Skyrim have been suffering major fps issues/drawbacks, with Skyrim coming to a complete freeze after a few minutes. 

 I know this is not the best gaming gpu but it was good enough for these games until now.

Is there some way I could downgrade my graphics driver until a new update comes out?

Yes, you can install a older driver package: http://notepad.patheticcockroach.com/1285/an-archive-of-amd-mobility-win-7-x64-drivers/

Why did you update? Updating your drivers is a option...not a requirement. Every update lists the issues it corrects, if you don't have those issues...don't update. Uncheck "check for new updates" in CCC so you won't be tempted.

Anyway, my Steam does the updates. I'll just uncheck for auto update on that.

You should NEVER allow STEAM to update your graphics drivers
