Ati Catalyst installer randomly freezes

When I was trying to update my ATI products the installer has randomly froze and now the progress bar does'nt even progress and it now only says "currently installing ATI Catalyst install manager" and it's been doing this for a day now and I've tried cancling it but it just says "Please wait for the current process to finish"
What do I do now?
If I don't do something maybe my computer is going to get ruined

The only thing I can imagine is that your security software or UAC decided to block the process and is waiting for your input.
Restarting will stop it, but it will more than likely ruin your graphics software installation at the same time.

You'll more than likely need to scrub it and reinstall.
Here's a tool for scrubbing graphics drivers.
