Computer is running fine, but for some reason I can't open the radeon settings in the system tray. You know, the thing that lets me access specific settings for different games or wattman. I did a full uninstall with DDU and AMD's own driver uninstaller and installed the latest driver from the site but it's still not working.

When the computer starts up, I can see the Radeon Settings tray icon and can right click it but if I try to select Open settings, it just disappears. If I try to go to the start menu and open Radeon settings it creates the tray icon and same thing, I can't double click on it or right click, it just disappears.

I've attached a little video of what I'm talking about. In the video, I go to start menu and open the file AMD Radeon Settings to make the tray icon appear but I can't do anything beyond that.

I don't actually get any errors by the way. It doesn't say application has stopped running or anything like that. It just disappears.
