I was informed of the 13.1 update from the Catalyst Control Center. This is the first time I have ever had a computer I built myself, so I am unsure of what I am doing wrong. I downloaded and installed the updated drivers, but Catalyst Control Center tells me that I am still using the old drivers. What am I doing wrong? If someone could provide me a step-by-step version of what to do, it doesn't need to be that basic, I would really appreciate it.

1) Download Driver Fusion HERE.
2) Download Catalyst 13.1 WHQL drivers HERE. but don't install.
3) Download Catalyst 12.11 CAP 2 HERE
4) Custom uninstall all AMD software through Control Panel, select everything and reboot.
5) Run Driver Fusion and clean AMD display drivers - reboot.
6) Re-install CCC and reboot.
7) Install the CAP profile and reboot.

I actually got it to work. It was something with the download from the AMD website. A friend sent me a different download of the drivers, and it worked. Thanks for all the help.
