Ive read its not just AMD drivers it removes, also removes sound card drivers etc..., best off using DDU if you want to use a cleaner.

I made the mistake of using this worthless utility with the same result.

It removed all my device drivers, for EVERYTHING in device manager.

As after I rebooted, windows reinstalled every single device on my computer.

After it did this, I rebooted and windows got stuck on the boot logo.

I went to my bios and switched my SATA to IDE and windows booted again.

Now I can't go back to AHCI mode and my SSD is running slower. I have no idea how to fix the problem.

I tried the mshaci registry fix where you put the Start dword to 0 and reboot, but that had already been set to 0 when I originally switched from a regular HDD to an SSD.

It worked just fine when I did that and now I'm stuck in IDE mode and I can't go back to AHCI.

So, I don't know how long this particular warning has been there on the AMD Clean Uninstall download page, but it specifically warns what this Utility does.

Quote:
NOTE: The chipset drivers, USB drivers, audio drivers, and AMD software components may be removed by the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility. As a result, USB and audio devices and systems using RAID arrays may become unresponsive after system reboot. Only use the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility if the system can be fully restored to a previous state using a backup image.***8203;

Is this warning new? Or do peeps just use sh*t without knowing wtf it does?

Just use System Restore, it will restore back before it is used.
