Need help installing driver.

Ok so when I had xp installing drivers was pretty simple.
*uninstall then reboot
*driver cleaner reboot
*install new driver reboot and your all good

*Microsoft visual c++
*Cat installation Manager
*Ati problem report wizard

Now after installing Windows Defender pops up with the C:amd/cat... path, notsure what that is all about.

There is also a hotfix which is supposed to help with card detection.
