GPU : AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB
Drivers : 22.5.1 (Downgraded because 22.5.2 doesn't have MSI Afterburner control)
Sometimes when browsing the internet, watching videos or playing games, my monitor just goes black and then a AMD error message pops up (NSIS Error) and AMD Wattman Settings error
I don't have a screenshot of the errors but it looks something like this (Not my screenshots)

NSIS - Nullsoft scriptable Install System
So its an error from the installer used by AMD for their drivers.

its rather strange that you get installer errors while just running a browser.
one cause seems to be a virus/malware so try running trial of this and see if it finds anything - https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us


could try downloading files again and try reinstalling them. I can see it can caused by corrupt install files. Curious, do you have an AMD system? Maybe another AMD driver is conflicting.
