    Major problem with Radeon 17.4.3 with Windows 10 Creators Update on APU A8-7410/Radeon R5 M330


      Hi everyone.
      Before upgrading my notebook (HP 15-af130nl AP A8-7410 8GB RAM - Radeon R5 M330) Windows 10 x64 Creators Update today, I previously installed the new 17.4.3 Radeon rivers from AMD and everything went pretty fine (exception made for some cycling peaks in CPU frequency oscillating from 6 to 12% every second but with apparently no effect on system or apps performance - see pics below).

      After I manually updated the system to Creators Update today through the official Microsoft upgrade assistant, Radeon Software manager didn't launch and Windows prompted me with the classic hardware error suggesting the correct drivers were not installed.

      I did a clean install of 17.4.3 drivers that went apparently fine but after reboot caused an infinite error loop on explore.exe app causing the continuously refresh of the destktop.

      I launched then the AMD uninstall utility and re-installed the previous 17.2.1 February drivers. It's now functioning back to normal.


      The explorer error is reported as following

      My opinion is that maybe it's not the case, for now, to install 17.4.3 drivers on these APUs, waiting for more refined drivers in the coming weeks.
