Default Control Center Confliction

Hey guys, need some advice here. I just recently downloaded AVG Free 7.5, and everything was working fine. A few weeks later, I noticed when Lavasoft's Ad-aware program ran, it told me only 31 processes were running. Usually I have 41 so I went to investigate. Turned out that my ATI Catalyst program some how got messed up. I couldn't access the control center for the Catalyst program and when I click the icon for it nothing happens. Also, AVG's resident shield has also been affected. It shows a yellow check, meaning that that part of the program has some kind of error in it.

I'm not really sure what to do. I think I should try uninstalling AVG, and then see if I can access the Catalyst program. If it still doesnt work, I'm guessing I'll have to uninstall both and reinstall them. Does anyone else have this problem? Should I even reinstall AVG, because it might conflict again in the future? Also, should I get a new version of the Catalyst software? Maybe that would fix the problem. Do I have to have an updated driver version to run the new Catalyst program?

Thanks for reading, and any replies.

I would go ahead and uninstall both and reinstall them. If the same problem happens again, try to get a lower version of AVG. It shouldn't even be doing that (btw), it could possibly be something else that is effecting this software.

Try something else other than AVG.

What is ATI Catalyst for? I have it, and it uses a lot of space on the harddrive, so I was thinking of uninstalling it.

Is is necessary though? it's taking up a lot of space, and i don't use it or think I'll use it.

When did 40Mb become alot of space........

the Control center offers more control over your videocard/videocard driver.
It offers you more Textures, Color settings, Even overclocking options...


To the original poster:

Uninstall and get the updated Driver from ATI, and the latest version of AVG and you should be in the clear.
