Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

I had a problem with version 11.8 not uninstalling. I used Driver Sweeper in safe mode to clean out the AMD driver(s).
Now I use driver sweeper after uninstalling. Might help some of the problems that other users have.

Is it neccesary to use driver sweeper or can we just install new video drivers over the old ones?

It's not necessary, no. Just use the uninstaller from Programs and Features.

AMD recommends you uninstall the present drivers using the Catalyst Install Manager found in Programs and Features. Then reboot and then install the new drivers. I have done it that way for years and have found no need for Driver Sweeper.

AMD really needs to update that tutorial as if you install "over the top", it uninstalls the old driver anyway without having to uninstall first. It has done this since around the time the 10.2 or so came out.

As far as Driver Sweeper goes, as long as you're prepared for the risks involved in using it, go right ahead. Just make sure to have a good backup plan in place if it decides to screw up (remove more than it should, rendering you unable to install a driver at all), you can restore it back without having to completely re-install Windows to fix it. It doesn't happen often, but I have seen it enough over the years that I will never recommend using it.

Well for some reason 11.8 would not uninstall. The uninstaller was stuck at one point. I tried for 15 min. Others have had this problem ; so I used Driver Sweeper.
I never had a problem before until now. Now it uninstalls and installs fine.

I'll probably use Driver Sweeper as a last resort.

The AMD installer does not uninstall everything that it installed.
