  1. I've been trying for I don't know how long to get this damn thing updated but it won't. I first noticed there was an update when I installed the filehippo updater.
    I've been to the AMD website, here at techspot & yes, via filehippo but still no luck.
    I was doing an eset scan a bit ago when I got a pop up telling me it was in need of updating so I crossed my fingers & hoped it would. It completed , complete with the green checkmark yet filehippo still says its needed.
    Here is my speccy stats

    And the page where I downloaded it from
    AMD Catalyst.JPG
    ??????:confused:

    Download GPU-Z and it will show your current driver version. If it shows the correct one, Id say it is filehippo that is reporting incorrectly.

    It looks to be consistent with the update you downloaded. So, It would seem that File Hippo is indeed reporting incorrectly.

    Filehippo sometimes is inconsistant. I always get an alert that my Java and Deamon tools are not up to date, but they are. It is usually correct, but sometimes it has some hiccups.

    I like Filehippo just for the updates, I dont actually download them from there, but I just see what updates are available and I install them from the vendor itself.
