This weekend I decided to upgrade my drivers from Cat 9.6 to 9.7. So I uninstalled them, rebooted into safe mode, cleaned it out with Driver Sweeper, rebooted, and reinstalled the 9.7 drivers. However, something must not have been deleted properly or something, because when I tried to start the CCC, in the Task Manager I could see MOM and the CCC start, take up about half a second's worth of CPU cycles, then after a while, terminate. Sometimes I'd get an error message saying "Could not load file or asembly "CLI.Implementation, Version=2.0.3427.27797, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e" or one of its dependencies. THe system cannot find the file specified".

First I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the CCC. No luck. I tried reinstalling these drivers, but it the problem persisted. Then I tried to revert back to the 9.6 drivers I'd had before, and with which the CCC worked perfectly before. Still no luck.

Bear in mind that the drivers themselves worked fine, it's just that I don't have Rivatuner or ATITool (and I have to say, after my initial impressions of them, I don't think I'll use them ever), and without the CCC I can't change fan settings.

Then when I was looking for a fix for this problem, I discovered AMD Overdrive, and I thought if I could install that separate of the CCC then it would be all good. But no luck there either, on Catalyst 9.7 or 9.6. I just get an error saying "AMD Overdrive failed to start".

Any help, please?

When you ran driver sweeper did you run it in safe mode? Because if you didn't it might have caused problems if you ran it in normal mode. I was having the same problem as you until I installed 9.7 then it decided to go away after a clean-sweep of drivers in safe-mode.

Yeah, I sweeped everything in safe mode. However, when I rebooted after doing this, I got a warning message about some sort of MOM.Implementation problem. Which is kind of puzzling, because it's not supposed to exist on my system after an uninstall and safe-mode clean.

hmm. You could try installing older versions of catalyst drivers. Or, try going into the registry to make sure that there are no MOM keys left.

Is there an easy way to do this? Or do I have to F3 through every entry that contains "MOM" in it?

Export entire hive, open with Notepad ++ and delete or replace every 'mom' entry with ' ' (a space) Then re-import.

That'll probably be quickest, but there shouldn't be many mom entires in the registry anyway, I'd say 20 tops.
