AMD graphics driver keeps reverting to default one

I have a Dell Inspiron 3500 with Windows 11 OS, with AMD Ryzen 5 3500U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 2100 Mhz, 4 Cores, 8 Logical Processors. I botched up my laptop somehow, and had to do a reset, and since then this keeps happening.

If I install the AMD Ryzen 5 3500U graphics driver via the AMD website, it installs perfectly and works for a few hours or until I restart my computer. Then the graphics driver reverts to "AMD Radeon Graphics" driver instead of "AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics Gfx" (I think that's correct), i.e. the one I just installed. Link

I have tried uninstalling/deleting everything to do with AMD and I've tried using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and the AMD Cleaner too, both in safe both, and it still reverts. I also have automatic driver updates from Windows Update off. I've also tried using the group policy too, and it still reverts.

Is there a way to stop my graphics driver from reverting?

Have you checked the 'Delivery Optimisation' settings, if your using Insider builds that could be another cause.

Check your system for any Dell software (Dell Command) that may be updating/replacing the driver. If it is set to 'automatic' updates, it might be trying to install the latest WHQL driver that is Dell/Microsoft certified etc.
