Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered.

I was sitting on the 15.11.1 beta catalyst driver for awhile because I have been holding off on updating to any Crimson drivers as they caused huge amount of issues and I was waiting for them to get fixed up a bit. I recently decided to update to the latest 16.4.1 driver to try it out. Big mistake. I haven't noticed any particular issue in games yet, however when I'm watching video, say on youtube or w/e, I get the notorious "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" message. This happens rather frequently.

 

I tried to redownload the 15.11.1 beta driver again, but when I download it, windows doesn't verify it and deletes it upon the download completing.

 

So I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place here. Anyone know any fixes for this issue or a non whql version of the 15.11.1 beta driver so windows will let me download it?
