You cannot uninstall a Windows update driver manually. However, as mentioned above, you can install the AMD driver over the Windows Update driver.
Oh really?? I never knew that! So whenever Microsoft download what they think is the required AMD GPU Driver for a system, we cannot uninstall it but it's perfectly safe to simply just re-install our preferred AMD Crimson software/Driver over the top of it.
So what about when we sometimes use DDU to clean out all the AMD leftovers in Registry e.t.c.?? Does it not detect the Microsoft one?
That would probably explain why MS downloaded a Driver even though I did a complete manual clean of the Crimson AMD Driver from both the registry and the other folders. Even after the thorough clean, I wondered how MS detected there was AMD on my system.
Did you read>Clean Install AMD Graphics Drivers
To perform a 'clean install' of AMD graphics drivers:
1. Download and save the correct AMD driver. Do not use "automatically detect and install". Download Drivers
2. Download and save DDU https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
3. Disable All anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-anything
4. Delete the contents of the C:/AMD folder of all previous drivers
