Anybody help me with this plz?

I used to run PrimeGrid GFN on my GPU, lately noticed new tasks not being loaded. Nothing else has changed in my system.
Running Windows 10 1709 (build 16299)
Radeon RX580 OpenGL v24.20.11000.13541
OpenCL v25.20.14007.1000
Radeon Driver v18.40.07.01

I have windows updates disabled (and i mean properly disabled) and nothing else has been updated since this stopped working. Installed latest client 7.16.11 - no difference. GPU just not found

Boinc log as below:

I would guess that Windows has updated something and broken the driver, regardless of your settings. I'd try the simple thing first, download and install your preferred driver from AMD.
