    Win 10 Disk Cleanup screwed up my AMD


    So after upgrading to windows 10 i decided to clean up some win 7 system files. BIGGEST MISTAKE!Those files include windows 7 service pack 1 which is need for the AMD card to work. Anything that is set for the AMD driver to use either crashes or flickers or there is a blank screen and i always get a message like " AMD radeon has crashed" or "Recovered from a problem".

    I tried reinstalling some things (Shown in the image below). The ones in red actually started up but finished abruptly stating that "The account already exists". The others did not even start stating "This is not for the current version of windows".
    So short of downgrading to win 7 (then back to win 10), is there anyways i can directly put the files needed or bypass it entirely?

    So far im going by just disabling the AMD driver entirely.

    Have you just tried to reinstall the graphic cards drivers? Go to AMD site and download the correct drivers for your card.

    Also the best way to clean SYSTEM files is only use Disk Cleanup and not to manually delete ANY system files.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the last three drivers but none of them worked. Even the latest crimson beta update didnt help.

    Also i cleaned it using disk cleanup, didnt manually delete it. I need a way to add them back, the major issues poped up only AFTER the cleanup.

    Ok maybe you can try using a 3rd party display uninstaller. This program once you install it, has to be run from SAFE MODE. This will find ANY left over display drivers on your hard drive AND also check your registry for anything related to ANY display driver.
    I've used this program myself, and know it works real well. Its made to find Nvidia and AMD drivers. After running it from Safe Mode, boot back to your OS desktop, then try to install the correct display driver from AMD. This time it just might install because Windows should not find any other type of display drivers or any information on any other display drivers, on your hard disk and in your registry. Their will be no left over files to confuse Windows. Too bad you didn't do some image backup Before this problem happened. I Always make image backups, about every week or two. Just incase I need to go back to a previous date when my computer was running good. Anyhow.....here is a SAFE link to download This Display Driver Uninstaller. (DDU)

    I used DDU to clean intel and AMD drivers before installing leshcat catalyst 15.11 drivers from Downloads - leshcatlabs.net .
    That didnt help at all.

    Also i clean up around a month and a half ago (kept AMD disabled) and dont have any restore point from there.

    Did you run DDU from SAFE MODE ???

    By any chance do you have any image backup that you might have made before this problem? I make mine about every 2 weeks. Or maybe a system restore point you could try?? Once those files are deleted, their is no way to restore them unless you have a backup.

    I assume you already have tried things like SFC /Scannow Or Dism commands like...
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
    or a much more involved one like this....

    Have you saved an ISO somewhere ?
    If yes, please mount it.
    Then go to elevated command prompt and copy/paste this...............
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    Note: H is the letter where the iso is mounted. If yours is not H, change it.

    1) Best way is copying the install.WIM from the ISO to a partition, like E:
    2) DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:E:\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess
