    AMD is a well known virus/malicious company. You've been bitten by a great malware there. RIP

    On topic :p : It happened to me once. Find from where the setup .exe starts and delete the folder

    It's the RadeonInstaller.exe but something is calling it whenever I start Windows. Deleting it stops it but the next time I update the driver the same thing happens again.

    Never ever had this, and I had/have radeon cards like 10y now. Check ur system, maybe u have some bug deep inside. And change default temp location maybe. And clear it.

    Find and delete all the AMD folders everywhere and disconnect the internet. After that DDU. Then registry cleaners or Ccleaner for cleaning temp and disk garbage. Reboot and install.

    Does it appear in task managers startup tab ?

    Check also if you can find it in the registry under :

    hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/run
    hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/runOnce

    and

    hkey_current_user/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/run
    hkey_current_user/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/runOnce

    Download Autoruns and find where it runs on startup.
    You can search for AMD etc in the tool to quickly locate items.

    Still happening after DDU and reinstalling GPU and chipset drivers. AMD has great programmers, spamming widely, always the same bug even after format!

    Thanks for the finding of these 2 tools @mbk1969 !
