In the Control Panel select Programs and Features.

Select AMD Software and then click Uninstall.

Click Yes when prompted, "Are you sure you want to uninstall the AMD driver?"

The uninstall process will begin removing drivers and software components. Note: The screen may go black intermittently during the uninstall process and may last for up to 10 minutes.

Once the uninstall finishes, the software should provide options to Restart Now or Close.  Select Restart Now to complete the uninstall process. 

Note: A system restart is required to complete the uninstallation process.  Before restarting please save and exit out of any open applications.
