PC keeps reverting driver to 17.1.1 have disabled all PC driver updates and continues

Iv'e been happily gaming on this PC for a over a year with an RX480 gpu.

Yesterday, I update my drivers to 18.2.1 after using DDU to remove the old driver.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, when I play games, they start crashing every 30-60 minutes with dx11/gpu removed/driver updated error crash dialog boxes.  When this happens, my driver is then shown as 17.1.1 in crimson catalyst.  I have disabled window updates, hacked the registry to prevent driver updates, yet this CONTINUES to happen consistently and has rendered this PC incapable of playing games.  ME:A will not acceptably run on 17.1.1 drivers....

It doesnt matter what driver I install, the driver will be reverted to 17.1.1 within an hour and crash any game that is being played at the moment.

FYI..it will revert the driver at ANY time, not just while a game is playing.

I need someone to tell me what the hell is going on because I can't fix this BS from happening over and over and over and over...

There are several methods to delay Microsoft updates. Maybe try another method > Windows 10 Forums

Did you delete the contents of the C;/AMD folder? Delete them all...  Clean Install AMD Graphics Drivers

I have done all that stuff.  It hasn't stopped this from happening.

In another futile attempt, I just decided to uninstall drivers, delete all the folders, use AMD cleanup etc, and give it another try.  I got as far as uninstalling and cleaning, power cycling the PC and opening a web browser to goto AMD drivers web page.  Before I could even get to the drivers, the screen flickers to a black screen, that annoying windows 10 sound occurs that happens whenever an event is occuring, and when the desktop loaded again I had ccc installed with 17.1.1 drivers installed LMFAO...this PC is junk until I get this solved.

Just curious...why do you wait until you have done a clean uninstall before you go to AMD and try to download drivers? Most people download the driver first.
