Voltage control works initially but then locks up on me. Why?

    Hello, I'm trying to use AB to make a couple profiles for overclocking and undeervolting my GPU. I have a Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ which upon first time install of afterburner everything seems to work fine. But then somehow within a day or two the voltage control greys out and I can no longer change it.

    Can anyone tell me how this lock up is occuring?? Is it some safety in the software? Is the program communicating with something else and locking up?

    Any ideas would help out a lot!

    Ideally I'd like to use one program for all the GPU adjustments and AB is nice because it pairs with rivaturner and gives me a nice OSD for monitoring

    Ever since I blocked afterburner in windows 10 firewall I dont seem to have problems anymore. I dont know what kind of communication afterburner is doing in the background and breaking functionality maybe someone can explain it

    Aggressive stupidity is not tolerated here. One more post about crapware and you lose access to forum, boy.

    Just looking for answers.

    Also Im simply letting people know to block afterburner in their firewall if theyre having problems with features getting locked up. Its a simple fix worth trying for people who experience the same issue

    The only thing AB checks is for new versions which can be unchecked so it doesn't. If that check was locking up your computer you've got other problems. The guy you responded to is the developer so his reaction is quite understandable.
