    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    Uninstall all ATI/AMD video stuff from Control Panel
    If you want CCC, then just install it from the ATI website: Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
    If you don't want CCC, follow these instructions: http://www.sysnative.com/forums/wind...procedure.html

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    Did that too and no change. Every time i start my computer it keeps giving me same error message. Should i un-install all AMD and ATI files from my computer completely or just from control panel???

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    If you un-installed all ATI/AMD stuff from Control Panel - and the error still occurs - then there's a corrupt setting that needs to be fixed.
    If you reinstalled CCC - then that's another problem.
    If you installed the DRIVERS ONLY - then there's a corrupt setting that needs to be fixed.

    1) make sure all ATI/AMD video programs are removed from the Uninstall Programs applet in Control Panel
    2) use this procedure to remove all instances of Catalyst Control Center
    NOTE: the drivers are also called Catalyst - so you must use the whole "Catalyst Control Center" string (without the quotes) when searching below:
    1) Create a Restore Point using System Restore
    2) Create a Repair disc:
    Win7 - Go to Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc
    Win8 - Press "WIN" and "R" to open the Run dialog...type "RECDISC" (without the quotes) and press ENTER
    3) Test the System Repair disc to make sure that you can get to the System Restore entry when you boot from the disk (you may also want to try actually using System Restore to make sure that it works)
    4) Download this free program (Autoruns for Windows) and use it to disable any instances of ccc.exe that are starting (or any other Catalyst Control Center entries) (DO NOT DELETE - only disable by removing the checkmark in the left hand column)
    5) Check in Device Manager (to include showing hidden devices from the View menu item) and ensure that any instances of ccc.exe (or any other Catalyst Control Center entries) are "Uninstalled" (DO NOT DISABLE THESE).
    6) Check in the Services applet (services.msc) to be sure any instances of ccc.exe or any other Catalyst Control Center entries are disabled.
    7) Search the system for ccc.exe, and if found - rename it to ccc.BAD

    In the event that the system doesn't boot:

    1) Boot from the System Repair disc and use the Command Prompt option to rename hssdrv6.BAD to hssdrv6.sys
    2) Boot from the System Repair disc and use the System Restore option to restore the system to a point before the changes were made.

    Good luck!

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    I downloaded the program and made sure all ccc instances were unchecked, then i went to uninstall programs in control panel and now it's only showing 16 of the programs i have installed. There are about 30 programs installed on my laptop currently. I went to the ones that are not shown in the list to make sure they still work, and they are still installed and working. What is going on???

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    I dunno! I'd start by wondering about a virus - have you scanned the system for them? In case your current protection became compromised, here's a link to some free scanners: Free Online AntiMalware Resources

    Has the CCC error stopped?

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc)
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    From the Admin Event Viewer logs there is something very, very wrong with your operating system.
    If not infected, is it possible that there was a previous infection that has caused damage to the OS before it was removed?

    Regardless, there's enough different issues here that I'd have to suggest a backup, wipe and reinstall of Windows.
    But, as this is a rather drastic move, you may want to ask for another opinion in the General Fourms.

    Should you decide on backup, wipe, and reinstall, here's how I'd suggest it be done:
    Backup, Wipe, and "Clean Install" of Windows
    For testing purposes, it's best to install Windows "clean".
    This is, basically, installing it the way that Microsoft intended (using drivers from Windows Update).
    This procedure is for Windows 7 and Vista.

    You will need your installation/recovery DVD(s) before you start. Once you wipe the hard drive there's no going back!!!

    1. Backup all your data.
    This will wipe everything off of your hard drive, so anything that you want to keep will need to be saved elsewhere.

    NOTE: If this is due to an infection, remember to scan the data with another system's current antivirus in order to locate and remove any malware.
    NOTE: Disconnect any additional hard drives (internal and external) that you may have installed. This may break any multi-boot setups that you have, so be prepared to conduct recovery operations on them once you're done. Don't forget that, if this is due to an infection, the additional hard drives may be infected also.

    2. Connect the system to the internet (if the system says disconnect from the Internet, then do so).

    2. Make sure that you've run hardware diagnostics on the system, as installing Windows on "borked" hardware isn't a real good idea.
    Free diagnostics here: Hardware Diagnostics
    At a minimum, you must have run these bootable diagnostics (they work outside of Windows, so Windows doesn't have to be working): Initial Hardware Diagnostics

    3. Use one of these free utilities to wipe the hard drive clean:
    KillDisk ( Freeware Download Active@ KillDisk ).
    DBAN ( DBAN Download | Darik's Boot And Nuke )
    This will also delete any recovery partitions on the system - so the installation/recovery DVD's are essential!!!

    4. Install Windows by booting from the installation/recovery DVD - DO NOT tweak any settings!!!

    5. Visit Windows Update and get all updates

    6. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)

    7. Visit Windows Update and get the Service Packs for your system. (usually under Important Updates).
    Read these notes for installing Windows 7 SP1: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
    Read these notes for installing Vista SP1: Learn how to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)
    Read these notes for installing Vista SP2: Learn how to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    Search Google/Bing for installing other OS's Service Packs.

    8. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates

    9. Download, install, and update a free antivirus so you don't get infected while testing ( Free AntiVirus ).

    10. Test to see if the problem remains.
    If the problems persist, then the problem is most likely with your hardware.
    If the problems are gone, then proceed with installing the latest version of your favorite programs, testing after each one for errors.

    CAVEAT: If you have an Asus motherboard, check the date on the C:\Windows\System32\driver\ASACPI.sys file. 2004/2005 is a problem, 2009/2010 is OK. Updates are available at the Asus support website.

    CAVEAT: If you have a Sony system, make sure that you DO NOT have the 2007 (or earlier) version of the Sony Firmware Extension Parser (SFEP.sys). Update this driver immediately!!!

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    I think you can try this. I learnt this from a forum that it is very helpful for this problem and simple.

    "Navigate to c:\ and right click on Users. Select properties. Under the General tab, look at the bottom for the Hidden selection. If there is not a check mark in the box, place a check mark there. Hit apply, select yes to apply to all subdirectories. If you clicked ok, you may notice that it disappeared from the right pane once it finishes. It should still be listed under the tree on the left. Right click on it again. This time remove the check mark from "Hidden" and apply to all subdirectories."

    Just noted that if for Windows 8. After hit on "Continue", then Click on "Try again" several times and then click on Cancel to close the pop up window.

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    I ran my computer in safe mode and the Catalyst control center didn't stop working. I figured that means that some software is making it do this, but i don't know how to go about figuring out what it is. I have run Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, both are showing nothing.

    Re: Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working

    So i ran into another problem a couple of days ago. My troubleshooter isn't working, every time i run it, it tells me that an unexpected error has occured and can't complete the process. I ran my computer in safe mode and the troubleshooter work while in safe mode and the Catalyst control center didn't stop working. I figured that means that some software is making it do this, but i don't know how to go about figuring out what it is. I have run Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, both are showing nothing. I also ran an analysis on disc C and it tell me that Sau11_DiskExplorer.exe seems to be corrupt
