    Yeah, its a waitloop, some com loaded dll or proc server is stripped out of the driver or a code bug has caused it to hang and not respond to whatever the loop wants of it.

    ucrtbase.dll seems as library from Visual C++. Try to update your Visual C++ redist with this:
    https://rebrand.ly/vcredist

    I have also i7 6700 + RX5700 without any problem.

    UCRT is not a VisualC runtime.

    What's up with that URL re-brand? Seems like it links to the GitHub anyway, but this is the actual project for anyone else interested: https://github.com/abbodi1406/vcredist (releases)

    I keep the latest exe around and just run it randomly. Every now and then something I install will decide to downgrade a VC package without asking, and re-running vcredist "fixes" that.

    The important thing to note there is that RadeonSoftware is calling OpenEventW. You can view event handles with Process Explorer. View -> Lower Panel View -> Handles (Control + H). If you select RadeonSoftware.exe when it's working as expected, there's an event it's loading called DVRReadyEvent. The Radeon Settings: Host Service (AMDRSServ.exe) is the owner of that event.

    This lines up with what TechPowerUp and I both found.

    https://www.techpowerup.com/274967/...ill-eat-one-cpu-core-when-no-radeon-installed

    So if you don't have the Host Services running, Radeon Software will consume lots of CPU time continuously trying to look for it.
