    Cannot Upgrade to Windows7 - Cannot Uninstall ATI CCC?


    Hello, I am trying to upgrade from Vista 32bit to Windows 7 32bit but in the installation process the compatibility report/upgrade advisor says:

    These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)

    ATI CATALYST Install Manager *
    ATI Catalyst Control Center *
    My problem is when I click Start, Control Panel, Programs and Features, I see ATI CATALYST Install Manager (3.0.710.0) and I can completely remove it but for ATI Catalyst Control Centre I can't even see it.

    So now Iím stuck on what to do next because I don't want to install windows 7 if it recommends me to uninstall ATI Catalyst Control Center. What should I do?

    Just to let you know: On the windows 7 compatibility center online I search software, ATI and it says both ati install manager and catalyst control center are compatible but when i run the upgrade advisor these programs appear. (as shown above)

    Any ideas/comments will be much appreciated thank you.
    EXTRA DEATAILS:
    I have a Sony Vaio Laptop VGN-NW11S/S with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphics card

    ATI Catalyst control center is 2.0.0.0 shown in updrage report.

    I right click ATI icon bottom right and select 'about' and it says version2009.0515.32.42252
    Microsoft NET framework version is 2.0.50727.4200

    I had the same problem. After you install 7, just go to the website and reinstall.

    Everything will be gone after the installation you need the software, also.

    One more piece of advice, before you do anything make a system image of what you have now. You can use Acronis (free for 30 days) or Macrium Reflex (free). In the event that things go wrong, with the installation or CCC, you can go back to square one and start again. Hey, there is not a better Christmas gift that you can give yourself than the best OS, out there.

    Ok, :)

    Do I need to use those programs you suggested if I have already backed up using the Vaio Recovery Center feature on my laptop?

    I do not know about every backup device, but if a problem ocurrs can you restore your HD to where it is now? If yes, you are good to go.
