Yes, Uninstall the old driver

 

Reboot

 

Download and use driver sweeper, Choose AMD Graphics

 

Reboot

 

Install new driver

 

Enjoy. 

Or if you really wanna be thorough like I am:

Or you can install CCleaner and use the registry clean up tool. :cheers:

I'd rather reinstall windows than do that IVI xD

You say that now but Driver Sweeper became a POS when it "evolved" into Driver Fusion. Glad I kept my Driver Sweeper installer :lol:

 

Like seriously who the hell would PAY just to have program to remove drivers... atleast Guru3D picked up the slack from Phyxion's failure

As often as I change drivers and never have issues I would say my process works. I use CCleaner after all is said and done. It works! If you have time to track down all the registry keys and delete them 1 at a time you go for it but for the OP  I think that the easier the better. ( No offense mind you to the OP)!
