I've updated the OP to support older OS using CCC or Crimson.

GUIDE: Remove AMD GPU Driver

Why was this guide created?

3rd Party software uninstallers (DDU, CCleaner, AMD Uninstall Utility) have been known to cause software corruption by removing essential chipset, audio and system library files. This may cause system instability, OS corruption or personal data loss.

Why should you use this guide?

If you suspect software issues with the GPU driver or plan to up/downgrade GPU/driver version, you could benefit from the guide. The posts show that around 95% of the users gave positive feedback, as it fixed short and long term issues ranging from error messages, in-game stuttering, poor CFX scaling, missing features, low FPS and driver induced system crashes.

Will this guide be compatible?

You'll need an Intel based chipset, AMD desktop GPU(s) and AMD GPU drivers. Don't follow the guide if you use an AMD chipset.

If you installed CCC and Crimson at the same time, follow the CCC guide corresponding to your OS version.

Thank you. Can Crimson now be fully removed? I mean totally and legitimately? Im not using it until it can be completely removed AND it doesnt run as its own 3d application that refuses to be overridden and set to 2d...and they need to add the "disable overdrive" checkbox to graphics [cards].
post #447 of 451
hello,
I'm Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) developer.
If it is not to much asking, I would like to have more information on the corruption mentioned in the guide that DDU produce.
I personally didn't get any report about this recently. And if there is a problem, I would like to be informed so I can fix the problem as I was quite surprised to see DDU in the "warning list"

Also, for information, DDU remove everything mentioned in this guide and more.(Driver store + more)

Note: When AMD does some big changes in the drives (Crimson). AMD does not send me the driver earlier than anyone else. So I must change / fix some stuff on release day. Keep that in mind.

Thanks and I hope you guys can help make DDU better so we can all enjoy it.

Is there a possible ETA for updating the guide for ReLive, if it is needed to begin with?
post #449 of 451
So, in Win 10 Home, double clicking "AMD Settings" now doesnt actually remove or uninstall. It just deletes the entry. Seems like that forces me to have to use DDU first or go into device manager and uninstall drivers via that route. Usually when I uninstall the drivers the resolution changes or screen flickers. None of that happens.
