AMD video stuck in update loop - installs 16.12.2 reboots and says 16.9.2 is installed & needs update

AMD Graphics Card: ARX9 270X 2GBD5-PPHDE

Desktop: Home Grown

Operating System: Windows 8.1

Driver version installed: 16.12.2

Display Devices: SamSung S27D590, HDMI connection, Standard/Default refresh rate

Motherboard: M5A99X EVO R2.0

CPU/APU: AMD FX 8-core FX8350

Power Supply: Corsair CTX750M



The radon software installed the current 16.12.2 for my video card R9 270X - 16.9.2 version is NOT even on the computer.

Then after rebooting and installing completely, it says I have an update for 16.12.2 and that 16.9.2 is the version currently installed.

This is NOT the first time or occurrence. This will be like the 4th or 5th time.

I even uninstalled ALL AMD drivers/software, deleted the folders and reinstalled using the AUTO-DETECT feature/software. Download Drivers < This page.

I now have frame lag - FPS delay, Some games lock up or freeze and require shutting down the computer with a cold boot start. Even task manager hangs or freezes during these times.
