Hey guys, I clearly recall that I disable the " auto detect update " during the installation.
Currently now Im on 16.3.1 BETA driver.
AMD has recently released a latest 16.3.2 WHQL driver.
Now my Radeon Settings / Crimson Software is detecting it and it's notifying me there's a latest driver out for updating.
Is there a way to disable it ?? Because I remember I disabled it / un-check this option during the installation and it's still " on "

Is it happening for any of you guys as well ?? I wonder is it that it only disables auto download and install for latest driver. But not notification....
It be real stupid if AMD does that....because each time I turn on my PC I will see the blob telling me there's a new driver out for update....

Seems like it acts differently for everyone. Mine only crashes if I ever did open up the Radeon Settings software / UI.
As of recent, I tried opening and closing it couple times it didn't...it's totally random.

But really thankfully it's not so buggy / broken till the point that I can't play games or causing me some serious problems.
I just felt uncomfortable that's something in my PC isn't working properly.

I won't advice to update the Driver via the Radeon Settings. It's better to download it manually and do a clean uninstall and re-install.
Though I never use the update via the Radeon Settings before so Im not sure is it working for me or not...

EDIT : Oops, I made a mistake for this reply, I thought this Topic is about the Application Host Has Stopped Working.
About the Auto Detect I think it was bugged in 16.3.1 BETA Driver. After updating to 16.3.2 WHQL, it no longer Auto Detect but now Im on 16.4.1 BETA.
