Help! Cannot locate MSIAfterburner.cfg

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I know that in order to disable clock limits set by ATI you need to access this folder, it just simply doesn't exist on my computer, what could the problem be?

I go to open file location, and it isn't in there. I searched everywhere on my computer after that, still no results found.

Help? Trying to squeeze a little more juice out of the 6850 I installed two days ago.

I opened my hdd, went to Program Files, then MSI Afterburner, and it isn't in that folder.



edit: I have even tried completely uninstalling the program and reinstalling, still no luck.

The folder was there at one point, and i tried to open it, said windows couldn't open the file, so I used one of the recommended programs (feeling stupid now since I know I should have just used note pad) and after I tried that, it wouldn't let me edit the file, but it opened. Ever since then I can't find the file.

I got an error message when I did that. "The system cannot find the path specified."
