Kernel Mode Not Working?

I recently downloaded ATITools, and when I launched the program I get the warning: "Kernel Mode Driver does not seem to be running". I'm not sure what the problem is or if there is a problem, but I was wondering if someone can tell me a way I can find out if my Kernel is indeed broken.

Thank you.

Check to make sure you have the correct drivers installed for your card. List specs.

Also, does this kernel mode problem have an effect on the efficiency of my computer / gpu? Why can these programs not run properly without kernel mode working?

Also, why can I not find a simple way to fix this problem? Is something hardware related faulty? Kernel mode is run through the OS or processor?

I swore I had downloaded that package already, but I went ahead and uninstalled/reinstalled the catalyst software and the same problem persists; "Could not load kernel driver" then "error loading the device driver".

Where can I see what version my driver is? Which line is it in the dxdiag that I posted? Here is the new dxdiag (after uninstall/reinstall)

Ok do this:
*****get rid of DX11. It's a tech preview and not meant to be used yet unless you are a dev. Get DX9/10. I think this was your problem in the first place.****

1. DL the Cat 9.9.

2. Un install the current graphics drivers.

3. Re boot and run this: http://downloads.guru3d.com/Guru3D---Driver-Sweeper-%28...
(Note: Boot in to SafeMode and run for best performance)

4. Install the new Cat 9.9 and DX10/9.
