Can anyone please help. I get the "catalyst control centre has stopped working" on boot up.
My specs. 9450 @ 2.66 4 GB OCZ reaper 750i board 4870 powercolour vsta home premium 64bit 780 watt power supply
I have tried 8.8, 8.9. Uninstalled, reinstalled, tried it with net framework 1.1 installed. Uninstalled in safe mode and run driver cleaner and driver sweeper. As a last resort i reinstalled vista. But the problem is still there. I get the message about 50% and by restarting runtime the control centre works fine, its just very annoying. Games are stable and run fine. I know its a small error but its very annoying. The error message is below. Please could someone advise. Thanks

By fresh, I assume you formatted the HDD's, because a repair installation doesn't really fix anything.
Did you have this problem before? Or was it fine and then it suddenly stopped working?
Been like this from day one. I re-installed vista. Rebooted, hit f8, rebooted from disk, installed vista operating system. When it re-booted i had to re-installed everything again. Thanks again for your prompt reply.
Might just be a Vista compatability problem (it's not uncommon). If you have "too much" time on your hand, try installing XP and see if the same problem surfaces.
Yeah probably. System stability is good. Message annoying. Ignore it I think. Do you know how to install XP so I can dual boot. I only have one hard drive at the moment in there.
I understand how little errors annoy the crap out of you (same for me). Just install the drivers without installing catalyst control center? :P
not only me then. lol. might just do that. CCC is a bit of a pain. thanks for your help.
I had this problem and fixed it on accident while trying to get rid of some virus issues. It is possible a virus has hidden some of your files and blocked some processes which has somehow stopped the program from running...IDK, but when I used an unhide files tool and got my hidden files to appear again (some virus did me dirty) I thought id check to see if that would allow me to set my desktop background again and sure enough it did. it also allowed my catalyst center to start up again. http://www.precisesecurity.com/tools-resources/troubleshooting/how-to-enable-show-hidden-files-and-folders/ try that one.
