Windows 7: Amd Catalyst has changed my resolution and it won't turn back!

Amd Catalyst has changed my resolution and it won't turn back!

As the title says I was updating to the new amd catalyst and it will usually pop into 800x600 then back to 1600x900 which was native for me but now it's stuck on 1280x1024 and it won't go any higher. I'm confused on why it would do this and that Catalyst will no longer work.

If anyone can help me in this situation It would be much appreciated.

Ahhh I see what I've done, at the end of the installation it says a reboot is needed to blahblah but at the time I was doing other things on my computer and I clicked no but this time I clicked yes and it's returned to 1600x900. Anyway.

Thanks for the help!
