I would remove the Catalyst control center... reboot and install the latest one.... if you are still having a problem in may be the video card failing.

While cleaning my wife's PC, (windows 7x64), I came across the same problem with the Catalyst Control Center has stopped working message.
There is a simple fix that will probably work for a major part of complaints. The problem lies with malware that changes the file attributes of files in the USERS/Appdata directory. Here is what I did to fix this problem as well as some others. Go to the USERS folder in the root directory and RIGHT CLICK to bring up PROPERTIES. At the bottom of the GENERAL properties there is a check box labeled HIDDEN. Put a check in the box and click APPLY. A window will pop up asking if you want to apply to ALL subdirectories. check Yes and OK. Another window will pop up letting you know that it is working. When it is finished resetting all the subdirectories to HIDDEN repeat the process. This time with the properties check box UNMARKED and hit Apply and select ALL again and click Ok. When it finishes resetting all the sub-directories you are finished. The Control Center should now be able to work and the error message should stop appearing. NOW RUN THAT MALWARE CHECK BEFORE IT HAPPENS AGAIN or preferbly before you start the above procedure. The scan software will not fix the HIDDEN attributes of the files needed to run the Control Center and other programs that rely on the files in the USERS folder.

Hope this helps,

Pappy

Didn't worked for me.... i don't know what is the problem. My catalist control center closed right after i double clicked on that icon. I don't know why and what is the problem. That folder hide/show solution maybe worked for lot of people, but not for me.... please, if anyone maybe even think that he knows the answer, tell me.... i am desperate.

Hi,


to solve this solution which worked for me is


step 1 go to

C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static


step 2 find file CCC.exe


step 3 right click the file go to properties

step 4 in properties window go to compatibility tab

step 5 in compatibility tab you will find comparability mode check the check box and from drop down choose window 7 and click apply all done just restart your pc.


this worked for me for my dell inspiron 7520 with x64 windows 8 running on it.


hope it works ....:)

try these
1.uninstall the driver from programs and features
2. post uninstallation if you get a prompt to restart the computer, then restart it
3. now once the system boots back up, go to device manager and under display adaptor, you should be seeing something call standard vga adaptor, if you dont see that and if you still see the amd card showing up there, do a rt click on it and click on uninstall, also check the box that says "remove the software for this device" and then clear the temp folder
4. now also go to the programs/programs(x86) folder and check if there are any folders pertaining to amd or ATI, if you find any do a shift delete, do the same in users/app data as well
5. now restart the computer and check , you display adaptor should be showing as standard vga adaptor
Note: post driver uninstallation, when you restart the computer, windows updates may try to install the driver back again, so when you get such notification ,click on the option "skip obtaining driver from windows updates" and then you can go ahead and install the fresh copy of drivers.

These are the steps for a clean reinstall of drivers, let me know if that helps

I had the same problem after i updated my windows 8 to windows 8.1. A popular solution that i found online was to uninstall and install back the CCC... the problem is if you don't know what your doing you might end up with a black screen. My solution: Look in C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\setup.exe. Run the setup and it will automatically reinstall CCC. After doing that had no more problems with CCC error.
Hope this helps.

Enable viewing of hidden files.

View -> Check "Hidden Files"
