    Strange acting of GPU when Windows forces update GPU drivers

    I've got strange problem with windows automatic update of GPU drivers. Here it goes, when I am using default latest manufacturer drivers of AMD [HD7970], PC works perfectly, now when windows forces me to update his drivers of GPU, than everything goes bizarre. All of the sudden there are spikes in GPU usage when there is no application open that operates with gpu. Click image for larger version.

    I mostly use Photoshop and Illustrator (my profession is graphic design) and now when I open/edit a document the work area starts blinking, and blinking occurs when this spikes on gpu usage happens. This newer happened before I use latest manufacturer drivers. Is there any possibility to disable or to not update GPU drivers, or any other solution, because this thing is really annoying?!
    And yes since PS and Ai supports GPU usage, I try to disable in preferences GPU usage and problem still remains. Other programs that not support GPU usage works fine.

    Hello Navje,

    If you like, you might see if you may be able to hide the update to stop it from installing.
