I was using the previous driver version on Win7x64 and everything working fine.


I then upgrade to Win10Prox64 and the following is happening-


For one, the Catalyst Control Center (CCC.exe) is dead.
Meaning, when i execute it, not only does it not open but Task Manager never even shows it try to load.


Event log Viewer also has no information either at time of execution so i'm completely clueless there.


And the other issue-

Display driver lag.


During Windows animations like start menu fade in, window minimizing, other menus fade-in, etc..

It stutters the display until the animation is complete.  I'm sure it's video driver related-
