I am running Widows XP 32-bit operating system with an ATI Radeon X700 Series display driver.  Not long ago my system did an automatic Windows update and the display driver disappeared.  I could still use my computer, but the graphics display really sucked.  I downloaded and installed the correct driver and everything was cool again...until the next Windows update.  I noticed that, during the reinstallation process, I got a message from Windows saying that the driver had "not passed Windows logo testing...proceed at your own risk", or words to that effect.  I suspect that every Windows update deletes this driver because of this "logo testing" thing.  Is there any way I can get around this issue?  I like to keep Windows up to date, but having to reinstall the display driver every time is getting to be a royal pain.  Suggestions??

Well you can stop using Windows Update, which won't really matter because XP is dead, or you can do a complete system update to Windows 7 or 8.

1. open Windows Update in IE.

2. Check for updates (custom).

3. Locate the display driver on the list (in hardware or important section).

4. Open its details with the little plus sign.

5. Tick the checkbox to hide the update.

It will no longer bother you or install it automatically.
