I would uncheck in msconfig any display device bloatware which was installed as it isn't needed unless you overclock.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit SP1

I have that also.

Using 12.6 Catalyst.

I noticed that after plenty reboot i got this cmd.exe in start up.

I noticed that my browser game is bit lagging.

Is it safe to uncheck this AMD Accelerated Video Transcoding device initialization in msconfig?

Will i loose something?

You don't need any Display software starting with Win7 unless you overclock.

I would uninstall Catalyst and then install only the driver to be the cleanest about it.

But you can also uncheck everything except your AV to test it that way first.
