    I've been having a lot of trouble trying to update my ATi drivers from v8.53 to something more current and decided to give your quick guide a try...had nothing to lose, nothing else was working....

    I could not get the 8.5 drivers to uninstall properly along with CCC becoming corrupted and not able to open and run...I wasn't even able to uninstall from programs and features.

    After following your quick guide I was finally able (I think) to fully remove all traces of previous versions of ATi drivers.I then tried installing the v8.8 drivers and their latest v8.10, neither would install properly, so I lastly gave the v8.9 a go and it seemed to complete the install without any errors.The CCC was now operating and all seems fine.

    My one problem I still have is when checking for the updated driver version, my device manager still shows v8.53 and although it says this device is working properly, it also gives me a msg that says, Windows did not start a related device driver.
    When I open CCC, it gives me driver packaging version 8.53 but says Catalyst version is 08.9.

    I really don't know what driver version I'm running if my device manager is still showing the 8.53 version. I would have thought that after the completed uninstall and re-install that it would show the newly updated drivers. Also the msg in the device mgr about Windows not starting a related device driver. Is this something that can cause a problem ? ....Is this normal or could I have missed something when unistalling and then re-installing the new drivers ?.....:confused:

    Thxxxx for any ideas......and Thxxxx for a good guide...
