    I have not tryed this with 10 but you could try right clicking the exe file and go to properties and then compatibility and run in compatibility mode for 8.1.

    Must be something else.
    Because I'm using 337.94 right now, and that's even older.
    You don't need compatibility options - revert those.
    Instead, use Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode (but found out it works pretty well in normal mode, too).

    Or manually, Win+Pause:Advanced system settings:Hardwareevice installation settings:
    Never install driver software from Windows Update. Checkbox:unchecked.
    Then uninstall the current driver and reboot [still I would recommend DDU automatic (and safer) method]
