Everything used to work a month or two ago. Back then my driver was 17.3.3. Then an update came and made my games unplayable (literally no game or 3D software will run on my PC unless I downgrade to 17.3.3). I uninstalled then reinstalled, same problem. It seems games can't detect my video card - they crash with a message like this: "No graphics device was found". Then I tried DDU and downloaded 17.4.4. I installed it and it worked. But when I updated to 17.5.1 - same issue. If I have to use DDU every time an update is available... I'll just downgrade to 17.3.3 and disable updates altogether.
