About half an hour ago my desktop resolution was, out of the blue, changed to 640x480. Not only that, this was suddenly the only resolution avaliable to me. I rebooted my computer and the problem persisted so I assumed that my graphic drivers had been corrupted (or rather hoped that, since I figured the alternative was hardware failure). But when I tried to uninstall them it turned out the uninstall program wasn't adapted for the resolution 640x480. You see, the verification button ended up underneath the task bar which made it impossible to click.
Now, fortunantly for me it turned out that running Windows Update fixed the problem (having Windows 10 is quite the adventure...) but the fact remains that your uninstaller doesn't support the graphics format that a computer default to if your graphic drivers stops working.
