  1. Try CCleaner and install CCC as Admin.
    You have to dump ATI install manager for complete removal in add/remove.
    Then do your DS in safemode.
  2. So i did as you said. Start, control panel, programs and features, CCC was not listed but amd install manager is. Right clicked, change, uninstall. Got same error message "catalyst install manager failed to initialize detection manager" Hit ok and proceeded. After, it was still listed. Right clicked again, change. Said it was un-stalled then it was removed. System did not ask to reboot nor did device manager show the driver uninstalled.

    Rebooted safe mode. Ran driver sweeper. Removed all ait drivers and such.

    Rebooted normally. System did not tell me a new hardware was detected although device manage did recognize the hd 5770 with a problem, right clicked, deleted, ran ccleaner.

    Rebooted safe mode, ran driversweeper again

    Rebooted normally, ran ccleaner again. tried to install 11.5 same error "Catalyst™ Install Manager failed to initialize Detection Manager" Tried to install drivers from the CD the hd 5770 cam with, same error.

    The only way i can get the 5770 to run at all is to run a system restore and even then, CCC driver 11.3 wont show in programs and features and i cant load it up although it is running in system processes.

    Ran everything as admin.
    All security software was disabled through the whole process.

    So lost on this, really need some help.
  3. Have you tried uninstalling it in safemode add/remove?
    I use REVO uninstaller for pesky programs add/remove doesn't dump.
  4. So i tried revo uninstaller. Uninstalled amd install manager, cleaned left behind files/registries, rebooted safe mode, driver seeper, rebooted, ccleaner, tried to install driver, got same error.

    I tried iobit uninstaller 2 beta. More amd/ati programs where listed such as amd app sdk runtime, ati avivo codecs, and catalyst control center-branding were listed. To no aval, iobit failed too. Thank you for trying to help :)
  5. Anyone have any ideas?
  6. CCC v11.6 corrected my issue
