What is Modify Link Update in Task Scheduler?

Hello everyone,

Today i was looking in my task scheduler and found (ModifyLinkUpdate) task which was not there before so i really want to know what this task does it's from AMD and it starts up at every log on and it is not the update task which checks for amd drivers on 5th and 25th of every month.

Everyone also has this or it's just me? and what is it for i ran it and it did nothing. Can i delete it?

Sry for the late reply, I'm not very active here.

So I did run it but nothing happened. I am just trying to find out what that task does.

I already deleted AMD driver update task so that must be something else.

This AMD Thread concerning the same task: AMD adrenalin setup is always opened in start up .

The User just disabled it.

NOTE: Also delete the AMD Installation folder c:\AMD if you still have it. It is not needed and using up a lot of Hard drive space.

I can't give a reason/explanation for the purpose of the task activating at start, or possible (if any) consequences of disabling it.

Send off an email to amd https://support.amd.com/en-us/contact/email-form , they may give you all the details.

Re: What is Modify Link Update in Task Scheduler?

Yes, I always delete the AMD Folder after installation and delete AMD update task but I am not sure about this task disabling/deleting but I will just delete it and see what happens. Seems like an update task anyways maybe link update or something.

Thanks for your help.
