Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

The AMD Driver software is called Adrenain.

Adrenaline  is a hormone caused by fight or flight response in a dangerous or exciting situation.

Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

Correction to typo: Adrenalin. 

Not really a pointless thread.
OP has a point.  
If the Adrenalin driver is installed incorrectly it can cause GPU/Game/PC crash. 

The built in Web Browser on the Adrenalin 2020 21.3.2 Driver GUI/UI should be a topic for discussion regarding internet security and tracking. 
There are no browser security options at all. 

Try this in the built in AMD Web Browser: https://coveryourtracks.eff.org/learn

Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

If the software is installed incorrectly, then you have no one to blame but yourself.

Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

I think Microsoft and AMD can share some of the blame.
Microsoft automatic driver installer often installs older/wrong driver versions (something that should be easily fixed).
Microsoft automatic driver install not even seen by the latest Adrenlin 2020 20.3.2 installer (something that should be easy to detect), so it will proceed to install over previous driver installation.
That may result in a corrupted driver install.

That problem has been happening and reported to AMD and Microsoft for years and nobody fixes it.

Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

People still use Automatic updates?

Re: Adrenaline Trojan Software

Yes, people still use automatic driver updates. 
Microsoft increasingly makes it difficult to stop them, and it is default to get driver updates with any Windows Update. 
Try uninstalling  Adrenalin 2020 driver and see what happens.
