I only really bother with MSE, it's possible that it could be shielding the process list, but I doubt it. Once I'm done writing this I'll disable it and restart, I'll edit in the outcome. xD
Do you have UAC on?
I don't, but I did speculate that it may be the lack of administrative privileges shortly after creating this topic. To this end I set CLIStart.exe, CLI.exe, CCC.exe and MOM.exe to run as administrator by default, and restarted. No change. =/
Do you have any debugging software running in the background or anything that installs hooks? Ancient version of Fraps maybe?
Fraps is the only one I can think of, other than Window FX which hooks DWM to create compiz style wobbly windows. However for the purpose of testing this, neither of these are running.
Anything interfering with the D3D device of the game? XFire overlay, Steam overlay, Uplay overlay, Origin overlay, MSI afterburner overlay, ATI Tray Tools overlay etc.?
I hadn't thought of this one, I've disabled the Steam overlay and tried EFLC again, unfortunately there was no change. Then I wondered if it was because EFLC has the GFWL stuff shoved into it. So I tried HL2 with the Steam overlay disabled, however still no change.
I'm not sure if it'll be much help, but I've thrown a DxDiag up here:
Thanks muchly for responding so quickly.
Okay, so now I have all overlays off, my AV off, all the CCC related executables running as admin and all processes that could possibly interfere aren't running at all. However still no change. :<
I also forgot to mention earlier, I have tried a clean install using the cleanup utility v126.96.36.199. I figured perhaps something had gone a bit wonky in an update somewhere, but no. It made no change.
I've just tried the third party RadeonPro utility, which functions perfectly, so there's clearly nothing stopping anything from monitoring processes. I'm considering completely disabling CCC and simply replacing it with RadeonPro, although I would still quite like this issue worked out. If I can get this issue solved, I would use CCC over RP. I'm not the biggest fan of trusting third party programs to fiddle with driver level stuff. Although at the moment CCC isn't giving me much of a choice. xD
