Title says it all. Wipes them out leaving your PC useless.

AMD does mention Win7 only but I know there's adventerous types out there. You've been warned.

Here's a relevant discussion:

Just rename it to surprise.jpg.exe and send it to your enemies with AMD configs and Win8. Hope they have file extensions turned off. There you go, used an issue to your advantage.

Yep...many sites are reporting bad issues using this on Windows 8. System restore has to be used.
