Do I need these?
If you have to ask that question I think you know the answer. Anyway if you don't use those items than no. Here's a blurp on video transcoding - Microsoft reveals native Win 7 video transcoding |

As for AMD fuel I don't have that one and have no idea what it is - It may be for AMD motherboards but that's just a guess in the dark. Anyway this is what I have installed. Even though I don't do video transcoding I install it anyway.

It may be for AMD motherboards
Quite possible, not sure if I have seen anyone mention them with an Intel or Nvidia based board yet. Also,

AMD External Events Service?

Thanks stormy. Just saw your post here - AMD External Events Service? and have to say that definitely looks to be an AMD motherboard/CPU thing only as us intel users (me) don't have that feature.....

sygnus, only user of the machine, user profile is Administrator. CCC wouldn't open without run as admin checked. It'd load up in the background, use an entire core for about 15 seconds, then shut down without having displayed anything. Run as Admin, loads just fine.

If that's the only you can get it to work for you than that's that. I'm just saying it shouldn't have to be run in Admin mode. You can go here and ask around and they will tell you the samething - CATALYST Drivers - Rage3D Discussion Area

It's not CCC that has the problem, it's 7's security feature that's saying you have to run it in Admin mode. Why? I don't know. Sometimes 7's security can do some strange things at times, I've experienced them myself

Here's my CCC BTW.....

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I'd really like to update my Radeon 3000 just because there is a new driver available but unfortunately I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. It's unfortunate.....

I don't even know what "values' i'm supposed to choose in the darn boxes they ask for.

HP support just sent me to the same link that the OP posted. I'm still confused as to the difference between the two packages. There are two packages.

The first one being 95.3 mb and the second being 74mb without an app.

What's the app? Is it the opencl driver? And what is an opencl driver? I don't know this stuff.

I installed the second one without the app (whatever that actually means) but am wondering if I did it right. Should I have installed the first one instead.

Also, Can I delete this ATI folder that is now left in the C:\ directory?

AND, The driver installed itself to C:\ program files. Is that the right directory? I figured that it would be in the system files somewhere instead of program files.

Actually, I have two folders in program files. One is ATI and the other is ATI TECHNOLOGIES with some "fuel" something or other stuff in it and reservation manager. Also something that I have no idea why it's there or what it does.

I don't have a clue when it comes to drivers folks so please bear with my shortcomings on the topic.

Catalyst Software Suite with APP removed (64 bit) English Only74 MB11.2 is what I installed.

OpenCL is a program language that can be used to have a program use the GPU (graphics card) to do tasks the CPU normally does. Normally the GPU is just used to display the graphic on the monitor and the CPU does all the rest. OpenCL lets the GPU act like a second CPU within those specific programs. If you want to add it to your system click on the Individual Downloads tab and download and install. When installed it is labeled ATI Stream.
The ATI folder in the C:\ drive is all the files used to install the package and I don't know if is used for uninstalled or repairs so I just leave it alone.
Under Program Files the ATI folder is where the Catalyst Install Manager resides and the CIM is used to install or uninstall the various programs within the package.
The ATI Technologies is where the files for CCC (Catalyst Control Center) are stored. The CCC is used to change settings on the graphics card.
There are two optional programs under the Optional Downloads tab.
HydraVision I believe is used if you have 2 or more monitors but not positive.
AMD Media Codec Package lets you use the GPU as a video converter which is normally done by the CPU. Labeled Avivo when installed.

Hope this helps.
