An AMD Radeon HD  8250 updated and "AMD Settings" started showing up in taskbar after a windows update about a month ago. Screen goes black. Slower than molasses and sometimes unexpected fail and restarts.

 

When the laptop is finally at working screen, I can roll back the driver and everything is fine. Windows updates, driver updates & black screen happens again.  How to stop this driver from changing and get rid of AMD Settings without breaking computer. We have two Acer Aspires V5-122P-0649.  Happening on both.  We do not do any gaming. Use computers for work.
