    Windows 10 Update wants to install a new video driver


    So I checked my available updates this morning to find that Windows 10 has downloaded and wants to install the "latest" video driver for my Radeon 7700.
    I have used AMD Auto Detect and it tells me I have the latest driver (15.7.1)
    I have used the instructions on this web site to disable automatic driver updates.
    So my question is...what is this driver?
    I have read before that Microsoft sometimes tries to download and install drivers that have already been installed or are already up-to-date.

    Create a system restore point, then restart your computer afterwards allow for this driver to be install . Check it out and see how it goes, check the version . If you have problems go back, if not keep it . That's what I would do but you don't have to follow
