    No wonder this problem still present been the same drivers WHQL'ed.

    Staying away from Overdrive (don't enable it!) and using Afterburner as "timings manager" is a possible workaround.

    Clockblocker probably work also.

    Looks like they removed support for the older HD series cards again...

    This must be the driver size difference.

    core clocks still bouncing all over the place, even when crossfire is disabled in games and I'm miles below my fps cap. I'd be better off throwing out over a £1000 pounds of AMD gpu's and a Freesync screen and buying a damn PS4 at the moment.

    I saw this behavior with previous driver also.

    My usual OC profile in Afterburner was 1150/1600 but since Crimson/Crimson hotfix applying it revert to base clocks instantly in Afterburner.

    1175/1600 i use now or 1200/1600 works fine.

    Another AMD drivers mistery.

    :3eyes:

    To be sure completely unninstall AB and reinstall it detecting GPU values.

    I don't understand why the drivers take so much time to uninstall/install in my system. It is happening since Crimson.

    I heard that couple of times, no explanation. It takes like 20sec here to uninstall/install, like always did.

    Funny thing is that it has persisted in two fresh Windows 10 TH2 installations.

    Hey PR I'm getting the same issue - are you running bitdefender a/v by any chance?

    I have no resident AV. Defender is disabled via Group Policy. I scan everything by hand using Malwarebytes.

    I disabled the sound card from Device Manager, and I closed Xonar Switch (I'm not using the "normal" ASUS CP). Stays the same.

    This is how it looks in Process Explorer. I wonder what it does with mshtml.dll.

    its along shot but you can never be so sure, try checking if you got any hard drive issues, maybe the instaler is loading in damaged clusters, so thats why you have redundency cycles.

    i like that tool for checking hds, good luck.

    I have no SMART warnings in any drive. Everything installs perfectly except this.

    From what I gather, that is some kind of Microsoft HTML library. I'd guess it might be calling home or grabbing ads to show. I noticed we no longer have that checkbox for "enable web content" while running the installer - it always annoyed me that they wanted to show that crap while installing a driver, totally bogus to waste resources and introduce a potential security risk.

    Maybe blocking the installer with a firewall or disabling your network connection will get the desired effect.

    I use no AV, Defender is closed by group policy. I manually scan things using Malwarebytes. The last memory check I did was when I switched my PSU about a month ago. It was the full version and the system passed it perfectly while overclocked. My system doesn't hang with Prime95 or has problems with any stress test. Everything else installs perfectly. The old AMD driver installs perfectly in under 30 seconds. This seems to stay where it is for a long time doing nothing. The install log in the end shows no errors or warnings.

    I used the cports utility from Nirsoft. The installer creates two tcp connections which I closed. The installation speed remains the same. This is what I have a hunch that is the problem though. It's like waiting for something from the mshtml library. If I click on the installer while it installs, it greys out and Windows give me the "Kill/Wait" popup. If I leave it the installation (eventually) finishes properly.
