New Crimson drivers cause artifacting on startup

Yesterday I upgraded to 17.4.2 as that was the newest driver. However, this driver doesn't work with Forza Horizon 3 (AMD please fix this) so I rolled back to 17.2.1. After the rollback I got artifacting for like 10 seconds on the desktop when I started the computer, I also get the message "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" and the device connected/disconnected sounds from Windows. I can play games just fine, without artifacting, it's only present on the desktop on startup. I rolled back to 16.6 and the artifacting is gone, probably because this version doesn't include the WattMan software. Does anybody know how I can run 17.2.1. without the artifacting and WattMan errors. I think WattMan is the cause of all the problems. Thanks in advance.
