12.10 / 12.11 Drivers make PC freeze with wmp or stream. HD 5570

This has been a big headache, any version of the new amd drivers cause my pc to freeze. I know it's a driver issue since version from 11.6-12.8 have no issue's. I tryed pretty much every version of 12.10 and 12.11 out there over the last 2 days. With no success.

I've tryed many methods of uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Even methods with multi driver/registry cleaners like.
1: Express uninstall in windows control center.
2: Make sure all physx, nivada, and amd drivers are uninstalled from there.
3. Reboot in safe mode. Run CC cleaner, driver sweaper, driver cleaner pro.
4. Reboot in normal mode, install the new driver.
5. Reboot.

Weird thing is i can run games without any issue, and can watch videos with VLC.
But I can't Stream any videos at all; or watch movies etc with windows media player, Without my system freezing. It freeze's as soon as you click the video or stream item.

I made sure that Java, and Flash player is up to date. Run things like wmp fix, Microsoft fix it, advanced system care. With no luck.

Uninstalled K-Lite and VLC.

Installed shark-win7 codec pack, now wmp works. But trying to stream videos still makes my pc freeze.
