AMD drivers install crap automatically, exploiting their customers

Jump to solution

Guys, I hate the crap that AMD drivers trick you into installing or install without permission. This is bordering on spyware at this point. With the last driver update, there was something I could tell I didn't want about recording & live streaming, and so I clicked "SKIP", thinking this would prevent it from installing. But then I found something called "Raptr" on my desktop and then later "Play.tv" in my tray. I don't want either of these things, have in the past expressed that I don't want extra crap (so why do I have to keep doing this on every update??), and I find the automatic installation to be offensive and hostile to me as a customer. I think I am going to have to switch back to NVIDIA, and recommend that my friends do the same when they ask me about graphics cards. Shame on you!!

If you don't want certain software installed you would have to pick the custom install option and un-tick the items you don't want to install.

Sounds like AMDpete knows his way around this difficult "computer stuff".
