Absolutely and I agree wholeheartedly in regards to Raptr, as do most of us here. The best course of action would be to follow this guide on how toClean Install AMD Graphics Drivers. Once completed with each step and you're about to install the newest AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.4.1, ensure you select custom install as your installation method. You will then be prompted to choose which aspects of the driver package are installed. Make sure to uncheck "Gaming Evolved" during this step and then install everything else located within the package.
With Raptr now gone, it will no longer consume those resources and you'll live happily ever after. I hope this helps and have a nice day.
I know that i can make clean instalation or clean update and IF i will remember to turn off raptr checkbox.
Issue is that i usually do some weird thing called trust to software and click "next next next" so this magnificent driver instalator decides for me that regardless i didn't wanted it last time i'd love to have it now.
That kind of forcing is really not cool.
ps. WTF is plays.tv??? ...not cool.

Ah I understand more clearly now. Yes, I agree the installation of Raptr via the driver package shouldn't be so subtle and they should definitely offer an option to "never include Raptr/Gaming Evolved during driver package installations". Bloatware within something so important as a driver package, leads to headaches for those not interested down the line and only leaves a bad taste in peoples mouths.
I'm sure some gamers do truly enjoy these features, but for those that don't they should have a permanent option to decline its installation. If someone wants it at a later date, they can always download it as a standalone addition when they choose to do so if ever.
As for plays.tv. It was launched on March 31st by the creators of Raptr and their answer to Nvidia's Shadowplay of sorts. If interested, you can read more about it in this article Raptr launches Plays.tv, Instagram-like platform for recording and sharing game clips | Polygon.
Anyways, have a nice day.
Looks like i have found 2 solutions.
1. Deny acces to folders
C:\program files(x86)\ Raptr
C:\program files(x86)\ Raptr Inc
from user "trusted installer" -- instalation will crash
2. Make those paths lead to ramdisc wich is being dropped every pc restart (i use ramdisc for cache ) -- instalation will complete but app will disapear after pc reboot, leaving dead registry entries.
I feel really bad that i had to go to so drastic moves.
There is also a selection within raptr which will start the program when you boot your computer...which surprisingly is set to default "On".
