Adrenalin Busy Mouse Pointer Fix

Hey guys i just found this busy mouse pointer fix for windows 7 and it works.

 Thought i would share.

AMD Adrenalin driver BUSY MOUSE POINTER bug

OK I FIGURED IT OUT. there is an .exe file ( AMDRSServ.exe ) running in the background turning on and off. If you watch Task Manager for a while you will see it popping on and off in different locations. You cannot turn off , delete or rename this file once the Radeon application has started. Even after you shut the app down.

HOW TO FIX:

Disable ANY AMD startup services in MSCONFIG.exe

Restart machine, and make sure no AMD programs are running.

Go to C:/Progam Files/AMD/Cnext/Cnext and find AMDRSServ.exe. Rename it by adding a couple of letters or numbers at the start of the file name.

(REMINDER: You cannot rename or delete if ANY AMD software is running)

Once you have renamed the file , recheck your AMD startup services and restart your machine. AMDRSServ.exe should no longer open and close causing the mouse pointer busy circle to run.

I suspect this is a .NET or missing Windows 7 update or Remote desktop service issue.

I Also noticed that my hardware and ram usage dropped after i disabled AMDRSServ.exe 

and the AMD control panel still works.
