Windows 7: Help! Catalyst 12.2 wont open.

Help! Catalyst 12.2 wont open.

Hi, I am currently using ATI 6970 and every time I reinstall Catalyst, it works briefly, but once I restart my system, it fails to work again.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I have tried using [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Driver[/COLOR][/COLOR] Cleaner from safe mode, updating my .NET framework, I have reinstalled my entire windows 7 OS, to which all of them have failed.

Catalyst does open, but only the advertisement loads, everything else does not load.

The weird thing is sometimes, catalyst would work for certain periods of time, and then all of a sudden it would go back to not loading.

heres what it looks like:

As you can see, it basically "half loads" none of the options in the sidebar loads.

i can even move it around, but it just wont fully load!

I have tried everything I could think of, my driver is definitely up to date.

Please help me solve this problem!

Thanks for your time!

Try using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clear any ATI/AMD driver leftovers.

Then get a fresh copy of the drivers and try again.

Worst case scenario go back to an earlier version that did work.
