Windows 7: Bad ATI driver through Driver Max, how do I uninstall/rollback?

Bad ATI driver through Driver Max, how do I uninstall/rollback?

So the story is, I'm running an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series video card, which hasn't had support for driver updates through the Catalyst Control Center in years, and it wouldn't run a game called Towns without crashing, so I was recommended Driver Max to install the latest drivers for me, which it did. However now there is horrible screen tearing on every game I play. Despite saying that Driver Max was creating a system restore point, it clearly has not as neither Driver Max nor System Restore can locate said restore point. The Catalyst Control Center will not launch either, it has an error of "Catalyst Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no setting that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center." So basically this new driver is doing my head in, what can I do to get my old driver back?

EDIT: Solved, I installed Driver Sweeper and swept up everything under ATI Display drivers. Then I downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba Asia website (other Toshiba site did not have my laptop model, although it downloaded the 100mb file at about 10kbps for some reason, so it took like 3 hours) and now everything appears to be back to how it was.
