We have prepared an article covering the most important solutions to this problem so make sure you follow it carefully and don’t give up halfway through just because a solution sounds a bit difficult. Good luck and you hopefully won’t see the same error ever again.

Solution 1: Uninstall and Update ATI Catalyst Drivers

One of the most common causes for the “Could not load file or assembly ‘MOM.Implementation” error message on Windows are old and no longer supported ATI Catalyst drivers which should be updates immediately. The message usually appears on boot annoying the users and prolonging the booting time significantly.

Follow the steps below in order to first get rid of the old drivers and then reinstall the new ones.

  1. First of all, you will need to uninstall the driver you currently have installed on your machine.
  2. Type “Device Manager” into the search field next to the Start menu button to open the device manager window. You can also use the Windows Key + R key combination in order to open the Run dialog box. Type “devmgmt.msc” in the box and click OK or Enter key.

  1. Expand the “Display Adapters” section. This will display all display adapters that the machine has installed at the moment. Right click on the AMD graphics card you want to uninstall and select “Uninstall device”. This will remove the card from the list and uninstall the graphics device. Make sure you choose the right one since you will sometimes have the integrated graphics card on the list as well.
  2. Click “OK” when prompted to uninstall the device.

Now we need to make sure the drivers are completely uninstalled as users have run into other issues if they simply uninstalled the driver from Device Manager. Unfortunately, you will also have to run the cleanup utility made my AMD to make sure you delete all remaining files and registry entries.

  1. The AMD Clean Uninstall Utility can be downloaded from this link. Note that this will start the downloading process immediately. This tool is designed to be supported only on systems running Microsoft Windows 7 and above so skip this solution if you are running XP or older.
  2. After downloading the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility, locate the file where it was saved (the Downloads folder by default) and double click on the “AMDCleanupUtility.exe” entry.​​
  3. A warning message will appear stating that the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility will remove ALL AMD driver and application components so click “OK” to continue.

  1. ​​​​After clicking “OK” the tool will be minimized to the notification area (system tray) and the progress will be displayed as a tool tip.​​ The uninstall process will continue to run in the background. To check the progress, you can hover the mouse over the AMD icon in the notification area.
  2. While the uninstall process is running, the display may flicker or turn black for a couple of seconds. This is a normal occurrence while the system is applying new settings.​​
  3. Once the uninstallation process is finished, a message is displayed stating it has successfully completed. Click “View Report” to see the list of components that were uninstalled otherwise, click “Finish” to exit the utility.​​​

  1. To finalize the uninstall process click “Yes” to reboot the computer.​​​​​​​​ The system must be rebooted after running this utility in order to apply the changes made.

Now that you have completely uninstalled the driver for your AMD graphics card, it’s time to install the most up-to-date one using the steps provided below:

  1. After the PC boots, the new driver should be installed automatically without the need of your intervention. However, if you notice that you are now using the integrated graphics card instead, the driver wasn’t installed automatically and you will have to do it manually.
  2. Navigate to AMD’s webpage in order to see the list of available drivers for your operating system. Choose the latest one, download it, and run it from the Downloads folder.

  1. Follow the instructions on-screen in order to install the driver, restart your PC after the install is over and connect the adapter to your computer if it was disconnected. Check to see if the annoying error message still appears.
