I updated to the 'so called' cumulative update KB4022716 a couple of days ago.
Every since then I have been searching, trying and with a fair amount of cursing to get my colors and display back to normal!
Everything is pixellated(sp?) and the colors washed out.
Speaking of colors .. horrible!
I can read text on a white background clearly (like this post) but Everything else is unreadable.
Buttons, links and anything outside of this message box is washed out and almost unusable!
It is not the resolution, I have already tried that ... over and over again.
I have tried changing the themes and background colors .. nothing works!
Now for the Fun part!
I uninstalled my AMD driver and restarted the pc allowing microsoft to install a new driver upon bootup.
The desktop, web pages .. Everything was crystal clear and sharp again!
Well ... within a minute or so, The D@MN screen blinks and everything is back to the MESS!
I have uninstalled the driver and restarted so many times that I have lost count!
I have tried to get to the Device Manager to see what driver microsoft is installing that fixes the display but the D@MN thing keeps blinking out and reverting back before I have a chance!
I have now 'rolled back' the update to the last one.
(Creative I think?)
On the Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise you get the "Disable Automatic Driver Updates" option after disabling the entire auto update.
(On my system, Windows 10 Home there are no other options after disabling the Automatic Update function.)
You can put off the entire update for a while but you can't stop the downloading of any of the drivers that may be wrecking your system .. as the video driver does mine!
On a site that I have trusted, many times (How-To Geek) for "How To solutions", I found the following 'tools' for doing what I can't do myself!
I have downloaded both the disable and enable tools but wont use them until I get a number of feedbacks from the experts!
With no other solution, would some of you techs please take a look and tell me what you think?
If you don’t feel like diving into the registry yourself, we’ve created two downloadable registry hacks you can use. One enables this option, preventing Windows Update from automatically installing driver updates. The other disables this option, restoring the default behavior. Both are included in the following ZIP file. Double-click the one you want to use, agree to add its data to your Registry, and then restart your PC.
