I got AMD Gaming Evolved to my computer, when I updated ADM Catalyst Drivers. This program cannot be closed - it is like a virus.

I tried to uninstall it, but it was not in the Programs list. After spending some time with Google I found that the name is actually raptr

ADM Gaming Evolved says that I have no games and wants to sell me those...

Do ADM developers really believe that all their customers want to waste their valuable time for playing games ?

Many people want to live in real concrete world, instead of game developers distorted virtual world. I want to do something by myself !

I have been ADM and ATI customer since 1986. But now I am considering other options.

Kind regards, Antti

Did you try custom install instead of Express and uncheck Raptr?

Express install clearly states raptr will be installed...and it also says ..if you do not want raptr use custom install.

The OP probably used the autodetect utility, rumor has it it installs the thing without asking. However, anyone using the autodetect utility deserves it...

Simply open raptr, go to preferences, uncheck "start with windows" and close. you will never see it  again.

Or delete 'gaming evolved' using your computer 'uninstall a program' . Then go to regedit and use the search for files raptr..there will be several instances.

Once that crapware is uninstalled CCleaner should find and remove the leftover registry keys.
