Whats an alternative to CCC?

Is there an alternative way to have updated drivers besides Catalyst control center? There is not an option to install the drivers only.

Download the drivers from AMD's website every time there's a new driver and run the setup file. When you get to the screen where you can do express install or custom install, uncheck AMD Vision Engine Control Center. Then, you will not have CCC anymore.

Im trying to uninstall the catalyst suite(ccc, drivers, etc) so i can Reinstall. I'm using a driver sweeper program. AMD-Display is coming up, should I uninstall that?

Do NOT use third party driver whatevers. Go to the control panel section called Uninstall a program and uninstall it from there. You don't have to remove the driver either. Just choose custom uninstall (or install) and uncheck everything except for AMD Vision Engine control Center.

I get errors everytime i try to open up the uninstaller from contol panel. However when i open the installer application it lets me. However when i uninstall like this it is never a "clean uninstall."
Everytime i uninstall and reinstall i get the messgae 'errors occured during installation." Everytime I update it I get that some error message. Even after I install the update it still says I'm using the old version. This is why I'm trying to use a sweeper.

Alternative to WMP ?
As the title, is there a good light-weight alternative to WMP? I'm talking about RAM, speed, and visual likeness? I don't like Winamp nor iTunes, and I've tried Songbird. Thanks in advance
