Start by getting hold of an external USB mouse - wired or wireless; that should get you a mouse pointer in order to navigate Windows.  Then check to see if you have a recent Restore Point that you can use to restore Windows to an earlier point (before the drivers were updates) - CCleaner may have taken a Restore Point before it updated the drivers.  When you do System Restore' there is an option to check what installed programs may be affected after Windows is restored to an earlier point.  May be good to check that before executing System Restore in order to give you a heads up if anything other than your drivers may be affected.
