Hi bud,

I would not recommend overclocking your CPU using AMD overdrive, if you want to run a nice proper overclock 24/7 then your should use the bios. Do a search for your CPU and overclocking guides on google.
I don't know why it's causing the issue, but often programs and features of Windows stop working if an overclock is not right, i.e not enough voltage etc.
