Windows 7: Can't open CCC

Can't open CCC

Hey everyone!
My question is why is it that my CCC (catalyst control center) won’t open? I start up like normal, let the computer load what it has to do, but I don’t see it on my taskbar on the right hand corner.

When I click on the right mouse button to open it up there, it won’t open at all.
I uninstalled my drives for the video card and then reinstalled them, same thing is happening, it won’t open. I’m trying to open CCC to set my fan speed low and lower the OC’d settings I have, they aren’t high, but I put them up a bit and fan speed so it won’t over heat right.

Please let me know what to do, thanks!


If you're not going to help or just say something stupid, just leave this thread.

Have you tried opening it from the start menu?

Oh and not to nit pick, you should only have one of those anti-virus's running at a time.

Is that Mbam just the scanner or is it the paid for version?

if you look in autoruns (download here >>> ( http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip )
you will see in the task scheduler ccc is set to run by default so it does run. if you look in the context menu when you right click on the desktop you should see the ccc at the top, click on it and it will open on the desktop, minimise it to the tray and the icon will stay in the notification area.

Autoruns for Windows v10.06 By Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP ( microsoft website >>> http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb963902.aspx )

It's the paid version, and here is the forum I posted about having both.

Anti-virus and Anti-Malware?

Having two av's running at once is likely causing things to not install properly.
My guess is you accidentally clicked on the hide option in the ccc context menu at some point, and now it's stuck in that state.

You'll probably have to do a complete wipe of all ATI related materials and reinstall to get it back.

Not install properly?
I had CCC working fine with malwarebytes anti-malware and microsoft essentials antivirus.
Only think i touch in CCc is overdrive.
I already deleted everything from Ati>CCC, i deleted the registry using, CCleaner, and yes that's safe.
