I updated to 17.12.1 and did not install ReLive, yet its still running?

Jump to solution

As the title says, I have never used or installed AMD ReLive, and I see 2 programs running. AMD ReLive Desktop Overlay and AMD ReLive Host Application (amddvr.exe & amdow.exe). Even past drivers, I have never used or installed ReLive. I don't ever intend to use it, yet why is it still running 2 programs in the background? I have tried to look for a way to disable, but nothing can be found. Any help is appreciated.

Windows 10 64bit

Intel i7 5820k 3.3GHz

8GB RAM

AMD R9 Fury X

Yes, same here.

I hate to have unwanted and not installed Services running in the Background.

I have done this:

In the Taskmanager, rightclick on the Process with the amddrv.exe and select "Open Filepath"

In the Folder where both exes are, you also find the Installer (MSI) for ReLive.

Install the Service and if it's done, uninstall it and reboot your PC.

After that, both Processes were gone here (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate).

If that don't helps, stop the Services and rename the File-Extensions from amddvr.exe & amdow.exe, to amddvr.___exe & amdow.___exe.

One of the above Procedures should work.
