Maybe try using DDU to uninstall crimson and clean out the registry with Ccleaner or Autoruns. Proceed to install the driver again. Something may have bugged out in the registry.
Hope this helps.

Please ignore the update prompt, I have already reported this issue to engineering.
16.5.1 is the latest Joyful driver and 16.3.2 is the latest WHQL driver.
That will happen if you install one Crimson driver on top of another. I found out early on that's not advisable...you will likely end up with mixed files from both releases. The way to do it cleanly and correctly with the Crimsons is to uninstall the old driver first then install the new one. People get lazy and don't want to do that so they try installing one release directly on top of another. You could get away with that with the Catalysts, but I found it doesn't work reliably with the Crimsons.
Also, you don't need DDU. Even the author of DDU says not to use his program regularly as a replacement for normal driver uninstall routines. The normal install/uninstall function of the Crimsons works just like it is supposed to.
I am having the same issue, every bloody DAY, pops up a warning saying to update, I follow the steps and update require to restart PC. Then the bloody popup again. I wonder how to fix this. It's getting beyond SURREAL.
I see an answers point to "Crimsons" what ever that is, but in fact I have all from scratch. AMD R9 270 1gb + win 10 + original drivers (did previous update with AMD catalists, same process that I am stuck FOR A MONTH).....
Who to fix this, or how to MUTE this popup, if it does not update (I am wasting my time here).
This is happening because you did not 'uncheck' "Check for new drivers" when you installed the graphics drivers. It is set by default to 'always check'. You can re-install the drivers over the existing one and this time uncheck it...or you can read a similar post for work-arounds.
