Windows 7: Undo install procedure Catalyst driver?

Undo install procedure Catalyst driver?

Assume I found a newer (Catalyst) Driver for my Win 7 graphic card but I am not sure if it is really the correct.

So if I double click on the download Catalyst (Suite) package and start the installation:

Does the installation procedure check at first if it is really the correct version?

If there is no auto-self-detection and I proceed with the installation and something goes wrong:
How do I undo the driver installation and revert to the previous state?

If the driver messes my system I cannot do an uninstall through windows.
So there must be another way.

Can I do an uninstall in safe re-booted Windows7?
In other words does safe mode use a different (built-in) graphic driver?

When I get uninstall the wrong Catalyst driver it somehow is automatcially the previous driver re-activated or do I have to install it (again)?

The best way to handle installing and uninstalling AMD Catalyst drivers would be to download the driver you intend to install from here and save it to your desktop.

Then download DDU and follow Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use to remove all traces of your current driver. Reboot and install the driver you downloaded for installation. You can repeat these steps as many times as you like.
