Are you experiencing any problems with the ATI card? If not, then I'd suggest ignoring the error.

If you don't want to ignore it, download a fresh copy of the ATI drivers (NOT the Catalyst Control Center - just the drivers). FWIW - there have been issues with the Catalyst Control Center on some Windows 7 installations.
Then uninstall all the ATI stuff on your system (using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program)
Then install the display drivers and see if that fixes the error
