Hi,
This is my first post so please take it easy if I by any chance am breaking some rules. :D 
I've been expriencing a very weird problem with my ATI graphic card for a while now and I simply can't figure out the reason for it.
I have a 4670 HD VGA which I bought 2 years ago and it was working fine until one day my computer was restarted due to some crash and since then weird things are happening. First of all IE9 is not working anymore on my computer. Adobe Photoshop says it can't use hardware acceleration or something like that and weirdest of all, my Catalyst center recognizes 2 4600 series graphic cards and I can't disable any of them :??:  Games are working properly though. Hope you guys can help me out. I've also added 2 screenshots just in case my English sucks :D 

Solutions already tested: I have updated the drivers many times both through catalyst and windows update. Still the same

These are my specs BTW:

Intel Core 2 Duo E7500
2 Gigs of RAM
2 Tb HDD
Win 7 - 32 bit

Yup. Actually I have downloaded every single version of Catalyst since version 10. I've also updated my drivers whenever a new version was available through Windows Update. Still the problem exists

Use driversweeper and remove ALL your AMD/Catalyst drivers, reboot, and re-install the latest from AMD's website.

Thanks for your reply. I tried your solution several times but still no luck. However, I just become aware of a very interesting event in my computer which I believe is somehow related to the problem. I'm sure you've heard of a little program called Procmon. It basically monitors events and logs them if necessary. I ran the program to see what is the problem with IE9 and look at this:

After starting IE9 it freezes (Screenshot 1) and after exactly a minute, just when dxdiag.dll process is started by IE9 (Screenshot 2) it unfreezes and starts to work properly. Please this is killing me any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Nobody know what is goin on right? Win 7 sucks when it comes to handling of VGA drivers I believe.
