    False AMD Presence

    How on earth do I get rid of this, it must be in the registry???? Quite a long time ago now, I uninstalled AMD Radeon and installed GeForce FX 1060 software and drivers when it first appeared on the shelf.

    But this has always stayed and I keep getting notifications for new Radeon drivers. I contacted AMD and they never bothered replying.

    You can use Autoruns. In Explorer, disable or remove ACE and that is it.

    I found ACE and asked it to delete it - no such file? it was in this folder

    HKLM\Software\Classes\Directory\Background\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers 14/10/17 15:52

    It was the only folder that even suggested ACE, so it must be an empty or part empty reference.???

    Clam. DDU worked great. I open it and in select graphic drivers I had two options AMD and Nvidia. Selected AMD and it told me that it had removed about a dozen entries/files - BRILLIANT. It said use safe mode, but as it was uninstalling rubbish I didnt use, I did'nt, and it worked fine. Second kudos of the day going to you. THANKS!!

    I was slightly wary, because I have an AMD Ryzen motherboard. It did not affect that.
