    This is what happened to me after using crappy Drive Sweeper or similar. Had to re-install Windows...

    I finally found a way around it, not really sure what part of it actually got it to work but it works!

    I think it was uninstalling a Windows update I had issues with over the past couple of weeks and disabling the automatic Windows driver updating. Not quite sure why either one of these or even both of these together would of worked for me but hey ho, Windows 8 for you...

    On another note, I scored 360 points less with the new driver over the 12.10 in 3Dmark 11?

    Working great with my 7870's and my 5970
    7870's seem to run a few degrees cooler on 13.1

    No frame rate improvement on the 5970 but it still run's stable.

    Keeps ruining my Windows 8 installation

    Once in a while on shutdown CCC.exe crashes. I have this .NET broadcasting message that tells me that an unknown application caused a problem. Up to this point the system (Windows 8 Pro) is still fully functional. However as soon as I click the "OK" button, Windows 8 goes BSOD.

    And after reboot I'm stuck in an infinite automatic repair mode which for a second shows that is is checking my hard drives for errors but immediately reboots. 10 times, 20 times... it just keeps going. I then have to insert my Win8 installation media. Unfortunately not to recover anything but to re-install windows once again. The whole system drive (C:) is completely empty. No windows 8 installation can be found there anymore.

    I cannot forcefully reproduce this error but it surely appears frequently. Last time today. And yesterday and before that two weeks ago. So basically I have two options - either use Windows 7 again or use another display driver. Unfortunately I need CCC because otherwise my old school HD 4850 board makes hell of a noise... and the fan speed is always fluctuating which really really drives you mad. :banghead:

    13.4 is still beta so i considered this to still be an active thread. And I have Win8 only for a couple of weeks now.
