(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.

http://youtu.be/X5Iek4467-A

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.

not sure what issue was with you but i also updated my driver and decided to give the raptr software a try. i could have used custom inbstall without. big mistake. i pley guildwars 2 and every time i would start game the screen would go black, sound was still there but black screen. started task manager and as soon as i did thast the screen would come back. after screen came back, everytime i clicked on ANY button i had to start task manager in order to get display to come back. i closed the software in taskbar and ptroblem went away.. i am thinking it has something to do with the softwares auto optimization of game. because the only other time i had this was when i i was messing with screen resoolution awhile back. i as you had same problem that i couldnt find it in control panel until i found here in this thread. thanks for info

This is the worst F* ***** software I saw in the kast month. Stopped my game -crashed it ans mentioned I should answer next time if I'm asked for (wtf - for what??). Look at the firewall settings - it's calling home and like hell! If AMD furtheron supports this intrusive SW  will defo never buy AMD components again. Nvidia also do the job - maybe better then AMD.

AMD should pology for passing this SH* to customers.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just discovered this ridiculous software hiding on my computer under this false name when I got an error message from the Windows 7 install program saying to uninstall ATI Catalyst Install Manager before installing upgrading Windows which ATI Catalyst Install Manager was already uninstalled but still showing up preventing the Windows install. And all this was because I made the lethal error of updating my ATI driver without first "UNINSTALLING" the old driver which ended up getting all kinds of BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) memory dumps just because the dumb-assess at ATI could not program their installation program to check and remove old drivers first if that is a REQUIREMENT of their new driver!!! Now Windows is totally screwed up and I will never buy ATI again - drivers and software are complete junk!

just so ya all know, the app spys out your system and sends the data to raptr's website.
