(I am not the previous poster with this problem, but I have the same issues)

How do I uninstall AMD Gaming Evolved?

It is not showing up in the regular Windows control panel list of programs to uninstall. It is not showing up in the AMD Catalyst Install Manager list of programs to uninstall. I do not want to remove *all* AMD software because I suppose it includes the drivers for my graphics card. I never wanted to install the program in the first place, I was just updating the drivers.

Does it have a different name in the AMD Catalyst Install Manager list?

Resolved!

In the Windows control panel program list, it goes under "Raptr", not "AMD Gaming Evolved". Uninstalled with no problem.

(If anyone from AMD is reading this: still VERY upset by the fact it has installed itself stealthily)

A program has never installed without me approving it including Raptr, which I have never installed.

I have the same issue... tryed to find a way to uninstall Evolved (a completly useless tool) but I didn´t find it in controlo panel. Thanx for letting us know the real name of Evolved.

When installing CCC, if you choose "Custom Installation" (instead of Express) you´ll see AMD Gaming Evolved in the list. I wasn´t able to untick it from the checkbox.

 

I hate having useless software in my PC. Thnx Granny

Actually, as of the newest versions of CCC, the option is no longer there, but Raptr is still installed without any notice at any point. On top of that, the driver detect tool, which is highly recommended by their own site to be used by the average person, installs Raptr without notification, agreement, or even an interface at any point (Be that a window or a task bar icon or otherwise) so it does stealthily install. So be careful in the future incase you use either of these applications.

After you have removed it thru 'uninstall a program' do a search for raptr in the registry files and delete what it finds.

Thanks for the info. Decided to check the program out but seems like a total waste of time/resources. A reward program, AMD? Seriously?

Besides that the 'optimal' settings it suggests are way lower than my rig is actually capable of.

What part is unresolved?  If you uninstalled, then removed Registry entries what do you still have or what is the problem your unresolved?

Thanks for the info, Granny. I was puzzled and astonished by it.

AMD is now spamming our computers... No wonder I don't by its products anymore. My main computer has a GTX 770 and I regret buying the FX-6300 for my secondary rig. Never more.

After removing Raptr I searched the registry and found that all entries wee removed.

I two recently installed the AMD/Radeon driver bundle after having problems with the downloaded version from MS Update. 

I clicked on custom install but did not at first see anything out of the unusual until after the application started and the AMD Gaming Evolved Poppped up.  I found no easy way to remove it until I searched and found this thread.

Also in a thread on the Raptr board I found this:

http://raptr.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31009

Also a video link to Youtube showing how the installation of Raptr cannot be avoided.

Disheartening, and quite intrusive.

It most certainly can be avoided. There is no instance of it on my computers. Once you have deleted all the crap it will not reappear. Just use custom install, and when the box comes up with the items for install...uncheck 'driver evolved'. If it should say its already installed and up to date, then it wasn't removed entirely and you won't be able to 'uncheck it'...the you tube guy didn't know this. But you are correct that it is intrusive...crapware of the highest order.

So is Steam and Origin, yet those two are considered acceptable.
