Windows 10 locks up while trying to install AMD driver

I've been trying to resolve this problem for two days now. The problem started when I upgraded to windows 10 Anniversary and realized that the OS replaced my 16.8.3 driver with a much older one. The driver became unusable and I seen that in the device manager my graphics card name suddenly changed from M200x to 8850m.  I've been in this situation before and succesfully resolved it with the "show and hide updates" tool from Microsoft. Also using DDU and the installer from Guru3D. Even rolled back the previous version of Windows 10 which didn't help. After that I made a full clean install of the OS and the problem is still present. I'm really getting fed up with Windows 10 now. This is just only one irritating bug asside a thousand more...

 

My specs:

Inspiron 3537

 

8GB RAM DDR3l 1600Mhz

AMD Radeon HD 8850m

Intel Core i7 4500U
