I've run into some strange driver issues in my time, but this issue is so persistent that I'm at a loss. I'm running a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 on Windows 10, 21H1. Here's what happened and what I've done to fix it so far:
I've done some research and tried a few common solutions, like changing a driver version registry entry or force closing all AMD processes and trying to launch them again with no luck. I'm completely stumped on this issue; I've never had a driver problem persist after such a thorough removal and reinstallation.
I know one option is to try System Restore, but unfortunately I recently switched my system from using AHCI to RAID and going back to the restore point from when I first installed Adrenalin 21.20.2 would remove that driver and all the necessary configuration, so that option is off the table.
I tried to look up where the AppProfiles that AMD Cleanup Utility could not remove are located, but came up empty handed. I could find a file or registry entry in my system and couldn't find any details online, either. I've attached a screenshot of my AMD Cleanup Utility report in case I've left anything ambiguous by mistake.
Thanks so much in advance for any and all guidance you can provide. I'm trying to finish an important video I've been working on for a month and play some games and I'm not confident in my system's performance or stability with this half-working driver installation.
