I tried both things, but couldn't find the options to do so.
I looked at the link in this thread, but none of the options give me to chose for the videocard I use (NVIDIA GeForce GT 240).

What do I do?

If you're using a Nvidia graphics card, you don't need the Catalyst Control Center, which is for AMD/ATI cards, not a Nvidia one.

If you're sure you're using a Nvidia card, then you could probably uninstall the Catalyst Control Center in Control Panel-Programs and Features. That is, if it's listed in there.

Ohh wait, I had a built-in ATI card when I bought this PC, and just bought this new NVIDIA card a few days ago, and since then the message has been showing up.
Don't see the Control Center listed in there, only the Setup Manager.=/

EDIT: Removed some files and I think I got it fixed.

Well, you're running off your Nvidia card right now?

The ATI Catalyst Install Manager? Or similar you see in Programs and Features, right?

Click on that, click Next, then just do Express uninstall. Might have to reboot after running that.

Then make sure your Nvidia card drivers are updated.

Ati/Amd have shot themselves in the foot yet again!

Virtually 2 years unopposed lead on hardware - yet consistently can't get their drivers sorted! Maybe they should employ another programmer and 'double' the workforce!

They had a real chance of getting miles ahead of Nvidia. Is it because they chose to layer their Cat/other drivers over the M/soft .net framework & it's all too complicated?

Microsoft .NET Framework

If you're going to install and use the latest ATI Catalyst Control Center, which is part of the normal ATI Catalyst Software Suite, you must first install the Microsoft .NET Framework (Version 2.0) on Windows XP - Vista already comes with .NET 3.0. Download the .NET package and install it, and then make sure to visit the Windows Update site and check for any additional updates for .NET regularly. The .NET package is absolutely necessary if you want the ATI Control Center to work.

If you're wondering what the .NET Framework is, and why it needs to be installed for the ATI Control Center to work, basically ATI has decided to use the .NET Framework as the platform for developing the Catalyst Control Center functionality. .NET is not required by the graphics drivers themselves, it is required for the Control Center. .NET allows developers to easily program in more functionality in the driver's user interface, especially for Windows Vista. Of course there are downsides to this for users, such as an incredibly bloated startup process and background memory usage. If you have installed the .NET Framework primarily to use the new ATI Control Center, you can disable two .NET aspects to reduce your startup time, reduce resource usage and still have no impact on the functionality of your system or the ATI Control Center:

1. Go to Start>Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes). In the Services dialog box, if you find the '.NET Runtime Optimization Service' then set it to Disabled. If you find the service 'Windows User Mode Driver Framework', set it to Disabled, however note that some media players like Windows Media Player require this service to remain enabled if you want to synchronize with a hardware media player.

2. Go to Control Panel>User Accounts and select the 'aspnet_wp ASP.NET Machine Account' (or similar), then choose to Delete it. This account is only necessary if you do software development work using the .NET Framework. Alternatively you can delete this account by going to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Local Users & Groups>Users and disabling the ASPNET account. Should you ever need to recreate this account, go to your .NET folder (usually \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\[versionnumber]\) and run the aspnet_regiis.exe file.
