WTF? Windows update/resolution problems

So I finally let Windows update itself and restart... and now it decided to screw with my screen resolution yet again. And the worst part? Now I can't get it back how I want it! The only screen resolution setting that I can find allows me to set it to is: 1024 x 768, 1280 x 720, or 800 x 600.

That's it. Those three choices. Nothing else. I'm pretty sure I had it at 1152 x 864 before, and I want that BACK, because this is just too big and awkward. But I cannot figure out how! And I'm using Windows Home 7 Premium.

Argh, anyone have any suggestions? (Other than kill Windows programmers and updaters, which probably wouldn't go over well and would get me arrested and all.)

Edit: Nevermind! I'm an idiot. I'd reinstalled my monitor driver, but didn't think about the video card driver until after I posted this. Re-downloaded that from the ATI website, and voila, suddenly I have lots more resolution options (including 1152x864, my precccccious.)

I considered deleting the post, but hey, if I'm going to be an idiot all over the web, I should play fair and not try to edit it out of existence. :p
