I installed the latest driver (driver only, the ati control panel etc is optional) yesterday and it messed up my PC, everything takes a very long time to open. Took 6 minutes to open up my internet browser, with nothing else running at the same time. So now I've uninstalled the driver, but its still dodgy, so I'm going to have to format my hard disk, and re-install everything.

Doesn't do the trick. I had the exact same problem about 2 months ago, after I installed IG. :eek:
Computer does run perfectly fine in safe mode, but it gives Windows that ugly Win98 look.
Formatting the pc is indeed the best option.

"Catalyst" is the driver.

The latest driver is Catalyst 5.7

This is directed at the two suffering intollerable load times for basic programs.

Defrag. Right click on the hard drive (C: for those of you don't know :|) disk tools and the bottom option is Defrag. Do that occasionally, fragmented data increases the load time, and if the virus scan returns nothing then you're suffering from a serverly fragmented drive :|
