You don't have the 11a numbers.

I tried gpuclean, the 11a drivers, Von mod capswitcher (dummy cap), vontweaks and I must say, I have very stable drivers with crisp clean image.

It still shows what CCC version it is as well as the driver versions, it just doesn't show the Catalyst version. Heck if you wanted to you could make it say anything you wanted too,

just find that line in the WHQL set or add it to the hotfix and add the version number yourself, or make it say anything you want it too as it has no affect on how anything works.[/QUOTE]

So What this means is I do have 11.1 even though it still says 10.12. I know that I installed it and I do have the new version of CCC. It just has not changed to 11.1 is all. Right? Or am I wrong? If I am wrong, Do I need one of the hot fixes & witch one?

I was having problems with my system and thought the delay was just another issue so I wound up reinstalling the OS. Anyways to make a long story short there was no delay prior to installing the Catalyst drivers. Now that the drivers are installed there is this short delay again, I'm thinking it has something to do with the new control panel.




The other reason I think it's the control panel is because Windows installed some of my drivers including the video card drivers during install and there was definitely no delay when right clicking the desktop, but again, now that the full catalyst package is installed, the delay is there. Never had this with the old panel.

Anyone else have or notice this?

Thanks.

i think i have the answer why there is delay and the ccc icon in the notification area disappears. in the ccc main window under preferences there is a setting called FOLLOW WINDOWS SCHEME make sure this is UN-TICKED and then the icon stays in the notification area and no delay.

Nope.... the delay is still there when right clicking the desktop or items on the desktop. I've pretty much chalked it up to that's the way the new CCC2 works.

BTW that item was already un-ticked by default. I ticked it just to see, and again, no affect.

Also I don't have the disappearing icon some have reported so....

Thanks.

Have you tried changing your windows theme to basic not using aero just for the heck of it? Or what about changing your appearance performance options. Try setting them to a higher performance setting. See if it works better from doing little things like that. You could even try to change your power settings to high performance. If you try these things and it works. I would not blame CCC2 I would blame the overall performance of your PC. This is just a thought. Might help probably not. But go ahead and give it a shot.
