Yes, the built-in uninstaller will do it. And yes to your other questions.

ok something is different even though the install to me looks like it didnt finish.... the original text in driver info is:
RADEON X600 series secondary
It now reads:
ATI RADEON X300/X550/X1050 Series Secondary
did it install fully? as i got a fatal error when it was last installing but the driver info tells me the new driver is there? im confused

I got it working (I think) lol I forgot to say I went from XP to Windows 7 so instead of doing:

2) Right click the installer, choose the compatibility tab then Vista SP1. Apply.

I changed the "Vista SP1" to:

Right click the installer, choose the compatibility tab then "XP Sp2". Apply.

and did a nortons 3D Graphics performance test (which failed every time before this) and now I have done it 5 or 6 times and it runs smooth and no black screen or freezing So fingers crossed I have seen the last of that Issue thanks again for your help.. I will keep you posted as to any more trouble (if any) I get with this past issue
