    In all fairness I've owned both nvidia and ati products. quite a few from both at this point.
    They all suffer from problems in various configurations.
    It's just nearly impossible to cover all possible configurations in every driver pack.
    They do try.
    This however is a fault in the .net framework, and yes they should have fixed it by now as it's seemingly caused by just one or two false dll calls during the installer process.

    This is kind of rediculous. I have not enjoyed my EAH 6870 for a year now because of this issue. This issue claimed my previous card 3870x2 as it caused so much visual issues my card kept resetting until it ruined it. It's time AMD/ATI fixed this internal .net problem. I have followed all steps in this forum, as well as other forums. This forum showed me something new in assembly however as after following the steps now I get this error when the pc boots up as cmd tries to run: "windows cannot find C:\Program Files(x86)\AMD AVT\bin\kdbsync.exe". Yay... and I can't get it to go away and I use regedit just fine as well as system mechanic.

    Worse, is that CCC is not listed at all now. It is in my control panel, uninstall etc. But not when I right click on my desktop. What in the hell... Rediculous. Its simple, write a program that completely uninstalls correctly your product. Give the uninstall the correct permissions to find everything associated with itself and lets all move forward with out having to change products (nVidia) for instance. I have not enjoyed this at all.

    Oh and fun fact... I had 227 public key tokens labeled as 90ba9c70f846762e
    sure wish it would have fixed my problem. I've been installing and uninstalling 12-6 from AMD btw.

    You specifically may want to try driver sweeper if you haven't already.
    Just make sure you only tell it to remove display related drivers. - Driver Sweeper

    ...and I totally agree, nvidia and ati both need uninstallers that actually uninstall everything.

    Wow... fast reply :) Thank you for the info, I have tried that before and didn't get any results but I thought, why not I should try it again after having done these other steps (assebly). It's a new one now, called Driver Fusion instead of sweeper. I ran it and found a ton... ran it again, found some more. Then realized, some weren't going away (HKEY)... but oh well. I cleaned as best as I could so I tried a nice fresh install of 12-6 and guess what... after a year of frustration and one destroyed x2 card, I finally, FINALLY have CCC again. I'm filled with happiness and grawr!

    Thank you for giving me the right advice at the right time, I'm very thankful to you.

    No problem,
    I'm hopeful eventually this thread will be rendered useless, (meaning they finally fix the problem) until then I'm just glad to know I wasn't basically talking to myself when I wrote it.

    I've often browsed here for solutions to issues etc but for the first time I actually felt obliged to register to express my thanks at the OP's solution.

    I have been dumbfounded by this problem for months, and your solution fixed it - THANK YOU!

    Same here, been debating whether or not to try this for far too long but seeing your guide made it seem simple enough to actually work. Tried it and 5 minutes later I've managed to fix overscan. Many thanks mate!

    Driver Sweeper is getting hard to find, it is no longer available at - Driver Sweeper.

    You can D/L it from this Seven Forums tutorial:

    Go to #1 'Download', this is a Seven Forums download link, not a third party.

    Will update my links, it's not a integral part of the main fix I posted here, it was something I added later for a person with a specific problem that happened by it. All the same thanks for the update.
