    AMD Radeon Settings 17.3.2

    I had the AMD Radeon settings 17.3.1 and when I tried to do a clean install of the new 17.3.2 driver and restart after i install it the AMD Settings doesn't show up as an icon on my start menu. Is this because it's an "optional driver" and doesn't include the AMD Settings app?

So I bought a new microphone and now it is doing the same thing. It only picks up my voice if I put my mouth onto the headphone of the headset...
