What graphics card / APU do you have?
Join the club. We are all suffering this problem of Microsoft Windows Automatic Update installing older GPU Drivers even though you may have installed the latest WHQL or Hotfix. There are numerous threads on here about it and take no notice of any of the suggested tweaks to stop it from happening because they really don't work. This really should be something that is sorted out between AMD and Microsoft. If AMD stop providing Drivers to Microsoft then Microsoft can't pass them on to us.
I have this problem last month, Windows 10 ask me to install an AMD driver update from windows update which is 16.6 when I uninstall and trying to install a new driver.
What I did is let it installed first , then unplug network cable, remove the 16.6 things and install new driver again.
Then I set this option to "No".
Device install settings : Right click StartMenu->System->Advance option->hardware->Device install settings
If it not works for you try this tool from Microsoft :
The first way seems only works for Windows10 Pro(works for me), for other version of Win10 I am not sure.
16.9.2 is the last WHQL certified driver. Microsoft Update will only recommend WHQL drivers, it will never suggest a Hotfix driver.
He wants ,or maybe needs ,latest BETA driver.
"Recommends" Lol. Windows 10 doesn't recommend anything! It just occasionally downloads a Driver during an Update. I've have already had Windows roll back a Driver to an older version than the one I was already using despite the fact it was WHQL. For example, I've had my 16.9.2 WHQL Driver, which is the latest Signed Driver downloaded manually from the AMD Downloads page replaced by an older Driver, 16.6 during a daily Windows update.
This is getting seriously annoying. Why aren't AMD acknowledging this is happening instead of popping on these forums patronising us by telling us things that are basically nonsense!
Just look at the amount of threads and comments about this issue and all over the internet too. AMD, please get something sorted out between yourselves and Microsoft.
There is one simple decision. Don't use Windows 10. At least if you have any win10 related problems.
Most people agree, that win 10 is useless and problematic for now, but still using it and complain on every forum.
If you decide to be a beta tester for free - stop complain.
Thanks for the answers.
I have RX 480 and now I have the newest 16.11.4 and I had the same problem.
That didn't help - Right click StartMenu->System->Advance option->hardware->Device install settings - set NO
DDU didn't help too.
But thanks for this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930?utm_source=twitter#bookmark-1607
"Select the Driver tab, and then select Roll Back Driver" it helped, but I lost clean installation of the newest hotfix.
Better is use that app and hide update. You have to hide update during downloading AMD driver.
Finally, I am happy. Sometimes I hate Windows 10, but the best Windows for gaming and other things.
You need to boot into SAFE MODE for DDU to operate properly. You can set up that from inside DDU too.
