AMD Adrenaline Software is causing my laptop to bootup very slow. Will it be okay if I remove it and let Windows update my graphics drivers? 🤔

    Use DDU to clean uninstall your gpu driver then while installing amd software from and site, Select Driver only . I am using driver only installation and it's great.

    Also, Windows overwrite new amd drivers with their old one which cause many performance issue. So after installing new amd driver their site. Follow these below steps-

    I recommend you to download latest amd software first then Follow these steps-

    1)Clean uninstall gpu driver using ddu with disconnected wifi and paused windows updates
    DDU Uninstaller-
    (Run ddu uninstaller in safe mode then select GPU under dropdown menu then select amd and click on clean and restart)

    2)Install amd software
    Amd software-
    (Download latest recommended version)

    3)Download below tool to hide that gpu driver update that windows is Installing from link

    4)Open this tool hide every update name start from amd
    (If it doesn't show any update then try to connect wifi and try again)

    5)Restart your laptop and windows will not install amd driver anymore
