Radeon HD 8790m - Grafik in games hangs and driver installation via Crimson fails

I´ve got Problems with GTA5. Even with lowest specifications - i.a. resolution, people number and diversity, etc. - it hangs all the time I drive a car. Sometimes about three times a second for one second. A friend has a third of my GPU RAM and the game is running fine on mid to average specifications.

I´m running the latest Intel drivers but when updating through the automatic Crimson update program, the PC either freezes in mid-installation an then doesn´t reboot or finishes but then doesn´t reboot. It always stops booting when showing the first manually chosen screen after these points start to rotate in a circle during boot.

I also don´t have the option to uninstall the driver via "uninstall a programm" as recommended in as it´s the driver supplied or downloaded initially by Windows. Would the Crimson pogram also work when I uninstall the grafikcard via properties?

I just installed Windows about four weeks ago after buying the PC from a big second hand dealer and reseller and now repair it after the failed installations with the mirrored harddrive or when it works with system restore.

Kind regards
