ATI Hydravision and Catalyst Control Center

I have both of these installed on my XP system with a AMD 6450 HIS card. I also have a Samsung 24" monitor with the MagicTune software.

My XP system is very slow at startup. I'm wondering if these 3 diff graphics related applications are conflicting and contributing to slow startup? Is that possible?

Which one should I uninstall and what should I keep?

Thanks for your help.

    personally i would uninstall all 3, also check how many programs you have running at startup.

    download ccleaner and run the file cleaner and run the registry cleaner multiple times.
  2. It might not be any of that. Did that just happen after a download or you have been putting up with slow boot for a while?

  3. so I don't really need any of these three? great!
    My system has been slow for a while now.

    I have ran ccleaner and registry cleaner. but I usually only run them once. I try running the reg cleaner multiple times and see what happens.

    Regarding the graphics card, I only need the most up to date driver to be sure that it's will work properly?
  4. you only really need the display driver and hdmi driver.
  5. Check Disk De-fragment choose "analyze" and see how bad. SKIP this if you have a SSD.

    I have deleted the 3 items from the original post and a few other misc items. I have ran ccleaner and registry cleaner a few times. My Wise Startup clock tells me that I have improved the startup time from 81 seconds to 64 seconds.

    What about 3VIDIA 5.0? I'm thinking that I don't need this either.
  7. if you do not know what it is or use it then you most likely do not need it.

    i have never heard of it and it does not sound like anything necessary.
