sure they do. It's why enterprises need WSUS to filter out and test updates before passing it down to thousands of windows machines. When something breaks the clients on the enterprise level it's a large portion of them. Because we all know that Windows Update isnt the best place for device drivers, and when you have a homogenous spec, you see how it can be a big problem.
Microsoft from time to time likes to flag these updates as "important" so they install automatically. Just recently they pushed out a Nvidia driver update labeled as important that broke many older computers with 8000 series GPUs.Edited by ez12a - 4/25/13 at 3:24pm
