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?

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.
