I have a strange feeling it is the Nvidia Drivers , All four of these 
computers in my Family and friends has a Nvidia video adapter, using the 
Nvidia drivers.

My computer has the same adapter as one of the computers, but I'm using

And all of these box just started freezing the screens after some updates.
