Wdiwifi.sys BSoD

So today I just recieved a new TP-Link dual band AC1300 wifi adapter, installed it, got the drivers and bam I was good. Now as the genius with drivers that I was, I tried and delete my old ones "Prebuilt HP desktop with an intregrated chip" with IOBit Driver Booster which always worked perfectly for me. Instant BSoD. I've tried using System File Checker in safemode, restore, auto repair and everything I could think of but it always failed or BSoD'd when entering windows. I'd also try using a thumb drive to boot but its an upgraded prebuilt so its not an option.

Can anyone recommend something to try?

Extra info: Window 10. Can only boot in safemode with no wifi.

EDIT: A more precise error description SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED. What failed: wdiwifi.sys

Telling device manager to update the drivers about 5 times seems to have repaired them to a usable state. Problem resolved
