Reinstall your AMD graphics driver

Perhaps your previously installed AMD driver caused the “Radeon Settings: Host Application Has Stopped Working” error. To fix it, you should try clean uninstalling the driver. You can do this by using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU, a utility used for clean uninstalling your graphics driver). Download and install this program, then follow its instructions to uninstall your graphics driver.

Once the driver is uninstalled, you should reinstall it. You can use Device Manager on your Windows system, or go to your hardware manufacturer website to find the correct driver manually. Either way, you should make sure the driver you get is correct and up to date.

Or you can use a driver updater. This is a more convenient option — it only takes a few mouse clicks to update a driver! The driver updater we recommend is DriverMax, because it’s powerful and easy to use, and you can use it to update drivers for free!
