Windows 7: Must uninstall AMD Catalyst; what do I need to reinstall?

Must uninstall AMD Catalyst; what do I need to reinstall?

In order to help fix some of my blue screen issues, I was told to uninstall the AMD Catalyst Install Manager and then 'Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts'.

Thing is, I know diddly-squat about drivers, so I am clueless as to what I'd have to reinstall. I don't even know what I'm really supposed to post here to get help. I've attached a System Health Report. I figured that'd be my best bet.

Could anyone here please help me with this?

Go into 'Control Panel' and select 'Programs and Features'.

Find the AMD Catalyst Install Manager listing and double click it - follow instructions to uninstall.

Google 'AMD Catalyst' (sorry, can't post a link here) and choose the listing 'Downloads -AMD'

Thank you for the quick response!

So I just need the Software Suite?

That's it. The "suite" package contains both driver and Catalyst Control Center, along with several other items which aren't crucial (and I normally un-check the ones dealing with (a) transcoding and (b) SDK, as they are completely irrelevant for my needs).

I also have taken to not using Catalyst Install Manager to uninstall, as it does not seem to truly uninstall everything. Sometimes this results in "false error" messages when I next install a new version of driver/CCC.

Instead, I use Driver Sweeper and simply check the AMD Display box, push the ANALYZE button, and when it's finished then push the CLEAN button, and when it's finished I re-boot. Absolutely 100% success in totally removing everything ATI has been my experience, and the next install of the Suite always completes properly.

YMMV

The Control Center is not even needed . It does add a lot of bloat but will let you adjust video and 3D settings if you need them.
