AMD Radeon Software: Adrenaline Edition 22.11.1 Possibly Causing Driver Corruption?!

Earlier today when I was trying to play modded Minecraft Java Edition I had encountered three crashes because my graphics driver somehow mysteriously vanished without me knowing about it!

First crash: just the usual hiccup that's caused by "bad video drivers"? Which I always thought it's just one of my minecraft mods in my mods folder (Tinkers' Construct 3). BUT now I'm really thinking that your graphics driver really is bad AMD!

Second and third crash: Error 87

[06:11:21] [Render thread/WARN]: Assets URL 'union:/C:/Users/Pwrus/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft/libraries/net/minecraft/client/1.18.2-20220404.173914/client-1.18.2-20220404.173914-srg.jar%23119!/assets/.mcassetsroot' uses unexpected schema

This is caused by my graphics driver that somehow mysteriously disappeared from my computer when I checked it in Device Manager!

At first I thought that the error was coming from one of the mods (Dynamic Trees Mod) cause of .mcassetsroot' (since Dynamic Trees mod does custom stuff with the trees in Minecraft such as roots and whatnot) but then I looked at the file path itself and I dug around the web for "error 87".

Even tho Error 87 in Minecraft is associated with missing or corrupted Mojang files but I made an assumption that I should go check my graphics driver in Device Manager instead and...Bingo! Missing video driver; AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 Graphics! Which partially explains the "bad video drivers" part!

Since Windows Update always rolls back my graphics driver and I keep track of the versioning of the driver on my google docs just in case cause of that dumb windows bug that windows 10 has (I have possibly made windows update stop trying to force "update" my graphics driver, HOPEFULLY).

When I checked in Device Manager in Display Adapters and looked in AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 Graphics' properties and there was no information about my graphics driver at all! What I saw was all saying "Unknown" and whatnot and then the properties window vanished after a minute!

My AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 Graphics was unintentionally uninstalled without me ever knowing about it when I remember installing AMD Radeon Software: Adrenaline Edition 22.11.1 several days earlier!

I had to uninstall the video driver that was marked as "Unknown device" or something similar to that and had to reinstall AMD Radeon Software: Adrenaline Edition 22.11.1 (AGAIN) while I was on the generic display driver!

I might downgrade to an earlier build till this issue gets resolved since AMD Radeon Software: Adrenaline Edition 22.11.1 might possibly be causing damage to my system as I speak!

I'm not 100% sure if it's possibly causing damage to my pc but I just want to take the extra precautions since my ASUS VivoBook 15 wasn't cheep (was almost $750 on Amazon in 2020) and I or my family can't afford a replacement pc and my Lenovo IdeaPad 330s (2019, my ASUS serves as a replacement for gaming now, for now...) has poor pc specs for what I do which is playing video games such as modded Minecraft Java Edition (which is the only game I can possibly play anyways)!!!

If and whenever I do manage to upgrade to custom building my own desktop PC my graphics WON'T be AMD anymore, instead it'll either be Intel or Invidia GForce!

I do however like AMD's processors such as the Ryzen 7 3700U BUT AMD's graphics I DON'T like at all!!!

One last thing, this is my first time messaging on here and I could've just let this slide BUT when my graphics driver mysteriously as well as unintentionally vanishes out of nowhere without a trace while my pc was completely powered off as well as trying to launch Minecraft while the graphics driver was gone is totally NOT normal for any of this to happen for any reason and shouldn't have happened in the first place!

I don't mean to be rude and possibly disrespectful towards AMD 'cause of this incident that I've experienced today BUT what happened to my graphics driver is unacceptable and can't simply be ignored and should be fixed immediately!!!
