AMD Overdrive utility uninstall problem

having following problem:  (FX8320 with Gigabyte MB)


I wanted to run my processor on 4.1GHz, which worked fine, when I manually adjusted it. After every restart I had to readjust.

Therefore I wanted to uninstall the AMD Overdrive Utility (downloaded 26.Nov.2015 aod_setup_4.3.1.0698) again and run my overclocking only in the BIOS.


But I may have done a mistake and used Windows 10 internal program to uninstall the program.

There is now a kind of .sys file somehow left over, which prevents to run mit CPU as per settings in the BIOS at 4.1 GHz. It is running at 18.5 multiplier only.


Now I thought I will re-install AMD Overdrive Utility and look how to proper uninstall the tool, but.....


I can not install AMD Overdrive Utility Version

During installation process the systems states: "There is a newer Version installed and I first must uninstall this newer version"

But this I can not do?

And I do not find any newer version of this AMD Overdrive Utility??


What can I do ??

Please help, Thx.
