    AMD Overdrive stopped working


    I have a laptop with AMD dual graphics. I used the program Display Driver Uninstaller to remove AMD drivers, and then installed the same drivers back. Before AMD Overdrive worked (allowed to speed up the video from 330 MHz to 1300 MHz). After, it says it cannot find AMD CPU.

    Well, the problem turned out to be quite weird: it was starting with non-elevated privileges despite the registry entry in layers saying it should run with layer "runasinvoker".

    Also if I make it in the shortcut properties to run as admin, it does not run as admin. Only if I explicitely select from menu "run as admin".
