I tried installing the latest Catalyst Control Center and my whole computer is now broken. While installing it was going normally, and the screen changed resolution and the installation window disappeared. I figured it was just doing it's thing, so I left it for awhile. However, it soon became clear that the process had broken, since after a half hour the screen hadn't changed.

At this point the taskbar does not show up, and most windows won't open at all. Control alt delete just gives me a black screen, and the windows key does nothing. Safe mode works a bit better, but some stuff still doesn't work. Anyone know what the problem is, and better yet how to go about fixing it?

I'm running Windows Vista 64 with a 4850.

So, should I assume you've attempted to uninstall CCC?

If you can boot to safe mode, try to uninstall CCC and graphics drivers, then use Driver Sweeper to get any left over drivers related to your video card.
