    A manufacturers site sending you to driver guide? That would be one manufacturer that I would never use again.

    You could try changing ccc.exe in (C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\ATI.ACE\Core-Static) to ccc.old if you don't use it(set it and forget it) and see if you still get the warning. Or which ever .dll is responsible in reliability history. If it doesn't work or get's worse you can change it back. But make a current image first.
    I need ccc for my switchable graphics to work. Otherwise I'll only ever use the GPU in my APU and my dedicated GPU will just sit there idle. Not a big deal but I'd like it to work as advertised.

    I'm guessing its a site meant to look like the official site and has the name of the manufacturer in its URL. I have never been redirected to a shame site from an official site. Not yet anyway. If your not careful what you type into Google though you can end up at a site with ASUS or Dell or whatever in its banner that isn't any of those companies.

    I'm also impressed with windows drivers. Even my OLD Canon S750 printer has drivers! Hook up a printer and in a couple of minutes it is ready to go. There must be exceptions, but you have to admire the comprehensiveness of MS supplied drivers.

    As far as win 10 goes, I started it as an upgrade on my main machine in Oct (with image backup!) and I have had very little grief at all. Certainly, I have never considered reverting to 8.1.

    Guess I just happen to have a hardware/software combination that doesn't irritate win 10! However, this same setup was one of the 8.1 systems that wouldn't do sleep timeout so that is one thing I am glad to have left behind.

    I have to say, "Great job, MS", but also acknowledge there are others who have not had such a happy ride. For those, I hope it works out soon.

    Apart from manufacturer's websites, I frequently visit two pages which are very useful and utterly reliable when it comes to finding drivers:

    http://www.station-drivers.com

    http://www.necacom.net

    Cheers!

    Actually, even the driver DVDs that come with hardware today are planted with crapwares. So what I usually do, I convert these DVD installers to ISO image and extract just the drivers from there. It's faster to install the drivers when you have them individually than going through a load of crap in the DVD installer.

    As I mentioned, "with the exception of well known and trusted community sites", of which there are a few. However, you even have to be careful on some of those as many of the advertisements can point to malware farms...

    Just to clarify the subject about Win 10 and drivers.

    When I install win 10 as an update, it finds every conceivable driver and more, all by itself on my system.

    But if I do a clean install, then I have to direct win 10 to where the drivers are located on my system.


    Now, are you guys saying that when you do a clean install win 10 finds all drivers?


    Or, are you saying when you update win 10 finds all the drivers?

    Yes, a clean install should find all your hardware (if there are drivers for it available). I just performed a clean install, and all drivers were found. I have done this dozens of times in virtual machines and all drivers were found.

    I have never heard of the problem you are talking about. Where did you get your copy of Windows 10 to do a clean install? What build was it?

    Its build 10130 the latest official release, I only get windows from the official sites because I use it as my main system and not on a virtual machine.
