    Catalyst Control settings


    I need to reset CCC to default settings without opening CCC. Reason is that I messed up a overclock setting and now CCC when launched causes a green screen. The card I have is Radeon R9 285. Anyways, how can I do that? The PC runs perfectly fine until CCC is launched. Fortunately I managed to disable it from startup so the PC is fully usable until I can fix this.

    Have you tried Safe Mode to open CCC ?

    Go to, C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\ATI\ACE, and delete the Profiles.xml file. Need to make sure that "show hidden files and folders" is enabled in Folder Options first,

    That doesn't always remove the profiles file.
