Need some serious help. On a whim I decided to install AMD overdrive. Now I cannot even log into windows. I get to the login screen but I can hear my system just screaming and then it shuts down. When I installed AMD overdrive it shut down immediately when I ran the program. I did not get a chance to make settings changes or anything. Literally open program, computer died. I can boot to safe mode. I disabled AMD external events utility and AODService in msconfig. I have tried to uninstall AMD overdrive but I get this message. 

"The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance" 

I uninstalled mIRC just to make sure I was able to uninstall from safe mode and it worked just fine. 

So the question is how do I get this AMD Overdrive crap off my computer 

I am running a store bought computer 

It is a Gateway DX4350 (yes I know, like I said it was a whim to install this, a very bad whim as it turns out) 

1065T Processor

6 gig of memory 

I am actually running an Nvidia 9800GT for video not using the onboard video.

Windows home 7 premium 64bit. 

Any help greatly appreciated

Yup, System restore. Not sure what you've done, but that's not indicitive of AOD, unless you just absolutley used to to hammer the CPU and apply that OC on boot.... I'm going to guess you didn't.
