Wattman Windows 10 Creators Fall Update

Hi there,

I am looking for help. PC was 100% before Windows 10 Creators Fall update. Since installation of this update, every day or other day I am experiencing a hardlock. When I get into windows it reports that Wattman crashed and has been reset to defaults. The thing is, I do not overclock, so Wattman is at default settings to start with.

I have done a DDU uninstall of gfx drivers, rebooted and installed 18.3.2. I did not accept the ToC for using Wattman, so in effect it should be turned off, but still getting a hardlock.

I have proceeded to installed the Asus gfx tweek utility to try and control/regulate the gfx card (a Asus RX 470 4GB), but still getting a hardlock and error from Wattman


It appears that the wattman defaults are the thing causing the problem.


Is there any way to uninstall Wattman? Or can someone provide Stock settings for Wattman for a RX 470 with no overclock or provide a profile of these settings for me to try. I do not want to play with these settings myself as it runs the risk of damaging the card. I want stock settings.
