sry for my english iam german i hope you get sence out of my writing

I copied a lot from the other thread because there is a lot similar to my problem.

yesterday there was a update to from windows.

I installed it and got to bed.

Today i started my pc and after a while i got a blue screen and at the same time the fans of my HD6970 began to blow really strong.


I started windows in safe modus and found out that the problem is that my Macromedia Flash ActiveX Control componente is not compatible with windows.

I installed the newest AMD drivers.

I installed Macromedia Flash player new.

After that the problem still is there.

Windows starts and i can do some things but when i start for example the catalyst controll center  i get the blue screen and my fans of the 6970 blows very very strong.

Issue Details

- Issue only occurs if the Catalyst Drivers are being used. Otherwise, the video card and display work perfectly fine with Window's default VGA drivers.

- Issue happened the first three times in the Mozilla firefox explorer while i made a thread with a grafik.  Fourth time was as i started the cataclyst controll after i installed it and the grafik drivers new.

- when it happens Windows immediately freezes in a blue screen and the fans of my grafik card blows very very strong.

- I got the message at the windows problem solution center that my Macromedia Flash activeX control is not compatible.

- My CCleaner showed me an registry error with the activex file or something with activex from my AMD driver folder. A pity i  repaired it and didnt saved it. i cant write it now down exact.

K an update:


I deinstalled the Windows updates from 13.2.2014.

It did not help. After that i had the problem again. I bet i didnt deinstalled all files complete.

Than i deinstalled the catalyst control and the AMD drivers AND ALL IS FINE.


Another question:

Is here someone from the staff who reads my problem?

No answer after hours now makes me suspicious.
