First this is my first post so Hi all.
I've installed "Game of Thrones" via Steam and during the final bit where it installs all of the incidentals before launching it gets to "installing amdcpusetup.exe" and gets stuck (it doesn't freeze it just goes on forever)
BTW I don't have an amd cpu just an amd gpu
Anyway I followed all the troubleshooting steps advised by steam, all successfully except installing said .exe manually, when I try this I get the message "this version of amd cpu driver only applies to winxp"
Since then I've searched everywhere for a windows 8 version I've also tried deleting it but it always says "cannot delete because amdcpusetup.exe is open in amdcpusetup.exe" (it's open in itself lol ) I'm getting very frustrated and steam seem to just churn out set solutions that don't work anyway.
Please help me if you can.

I appreciate your time and advice
Edit-OK good job I managed to sort this myself given the help I got from this forum.
I went into task manager and with all incidence of amdcpusetup.exe (and there was several) I right clicked and selected "end task".
I then browsed to amdcpusetup.exe and deleted it (made a copy first just in case) my reasoning being that as I didn't have an amd cpu this file was probably not meant to be there anyway and it was perhaps some sort of crossed wires (metaphorically) because of my amd gpu.
Anyhoo, wether the logic was sound or not, it worked.
So I bid this forum goodbye and hope you get more response than I did!
