No, just pick 1 WHQL driver to install. You have to download the whole CCC, but by selecting custom install, you don't have to install all of them. I believe the latest out are the 14.4 WHQL.

Gotcha!

Also, what I'm about to ask may just make you cringe. So I'm at Control panel and possibly found the graphics driver, It's AMD Catalyst Install Manager, is this the correct one?

It should say Catalyst Control center, but that is probably part of it. I'm an Nvidia guy. But I do have AMD cards also. It is usually installed as Catalyst Control Center, but most anything having to do with CCC could be it.

Yeah thought so! Will my computer be running normal without this? I'm a little nervous about entirely "uninstalling" it.

You will be installing new drivers. You actually only need the Graphics driver, nothing else.

Downloaded DDU and completely uninstalled it, booted to safe mode to do and back to normal windows, albeit at a much lower screen res which I can't boost to 1920x1080. I will now install the driver.

Oh my god you won't believe it, ever since I bought The Swapper I never had it work because of my driver doesn't support some shader or something. IT WORKS NOW!

I further took it to try this https://cdn.mediacru.sh/53SBHMUMLjfr.mp4 because before there was a lot of green and glitching, it's super crisp. Thank you so much!

You are very welcome, but before thanking me, wait a few days to see if it's fixed.
