Windows 11 Updates and AMD 6900XT 'surprises'

Recommended Posts

Monday morning...and in the middle of being hyper-busy with an AI project, my main work machine started to give me some odd messages when working on some graphs for the project 😡:





...ok, so checking out that provided link 😡 




I tend to run the second most-recent driver package for the AMD Radeon and 'never' set it to auto-driver updates, given the observed issues with brand-new AMD drivers. Alas, once I updated the Radeon driver to the latest version this morning (fingers crossed), AMD Adrenalin software was back and working fine...


...however, now my 'Print_Screen' button automatically engages the Microsoft snipping tool (I had another software set as default); Print_Screen doesn't work anymore on any other programs UNTIL I have first used the MS Snip tool for a given image (only then can I use the other programs)...and of course Microsoft Edge displaced Firefox as the default web page program.


These are just the first few observations of Microsoft's latest 'patches' as I am too busy work-wise to check everything else. That said, we have started to move more and more office machines away from Microsoft to Linux - especially those dealing with code, documents, emails and such. Microsoft's latest AI-enabled patch is yet another (in my opinion) illegal push into the privacy and secure document and communications zone on a PC...no thank you. Also, we have a strict policy to NOT use OneDrive, yet some of the email contents have disappeared with 'a link to server to view'...


With AI being all the rage and Microsoft's heavy investments into OpenAI / ChatGPT, I expected even more snooping and 'appropriation' would be going on, not only on text files and emails, but also graphics and audio, given AI's voracious training data input demands. Fortunately, my other system (below right is Win 10 Pro) instead of the main work system (below left, Win 11 Pro), though Microsoft is sure to backfill Win 10 Proa as well, IMO.


So yeah, major systems here are already being re-vamped for Linux; we'll keep a few on Win 11 Pro - but not for docs, emails and such.

  2. In System Properties, select the Hardware tab, then click on Device Installation Settings. 
  3. In the Device installation settings screen, choose NO.
