Same issue as greatkronos on version 18.12.2
HW (Custom built):
MSI C236M Workstation motherboard
Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5 CPU
(1) RX-480 8GB
I've installed and maintained every app and piece of hardware on this PC from day 1 and the only issues I have ever had have been this video card and its drivers.
First of all, i'm not english so sorry if your eyes hurts due to my mistakes.
I had the same problem when i saw this topic and try what you wrote and the problem continued. Then i tried to fix it by my own.
1.- Install the 18.12.3 AMD Radeon Adrenalin Drivers and restart PC. Yes, AMD Settings do not open.
2.- Reboot in Safe Mode, uninstalled Intel GPU Drivers instead of AMD and disconnect Ethernet Cable from the MotherBoard and then restart.
3.- After that you will open AMD Settings with no problems.
4.- Reboot again (W10 Send me a notification that there were changes in GPU).
5.- Now you can connect again the Ethernet Cable.
Maybe Drivers conflicts between Intel graphics of the cpu and new AMD GPU??
Uninstalling Intel Graphics fix me too the issue that ReLive shortcuts don't work.
Hope it helps you.

I have the same issue on both 18.12.2 and 18.12.3.
I tried clean installs and ddu as well, but the settings just won't work.
So I ended up doing an entire clean uninstall of all AMD drivers and software. Doing several restarts and ensuring there was nothing left. Did a clean custom install of the latest software and then made sure the system still recognized the GPU in Device manager. That is a key point, make sure device manager recognizes the GPU and select the GPU, go to properties and it should have an option to rollback the drivers to the earlier version, mine being "188.8.131.52" on 4/24/2017 is the rollback drivers. You might be able to find that driver online or a more recent driver but at the moment I am now able to access AMD Settings and have no issues.

On every driver download page..scroll to bottom..."Previous drivers"
But everyone with this issue should report it to AMD..it's the only way it will get fixed > Online Service Request | AMD
Thanks for the link kingfish.
I just wish we didn't have to be the Q&A department for AMD.
