Some games like to install this (muttering under breath) thing even if you do not run an AMD CPU or an ATI/AMD GPU. I call it poor programming, because it does not come with an uninstaller. It runs in the background and does nothing for me. And there is the obvious anything that installs, should also uninstall easily through add/remove programs or programs and features.

To remove it, often times people provide details about going into the Administration tools > Services and disabling it. Now it does not take a 2nd grader to figure out that this is not uninstalling it, deleting it, or removing it in any way shape or form.

This is how you uninstall it.

Goto Administrative Tools > Services
Locate AMD External Events Utility and right click on it, goto Properties and left click. Use the drop down next to Startup Type: and select Manual, then click on Stop to stop the service.
Wait for the Service Status: to display Stopped (otherwise you cannot remove it)

Goto Start>Run>cmd (or search for cmd) and type in the following:
Code:
sc delete "AMD External Events Utility"

And hit enter. The console should echo the following:
Code:
[SC] DeleteService SUCCESS

If you encounter problems with administrative rights, you need to run cmd.exe with elevated privileges.
