How to completely uninstall CCC and Drivers? - Page 2

Awesome, thank you guys.
post #12 of 12
I'm not sure what the original driver was when I built my current rig in November, but I updated to 10.12 right away.

This may be common knowledge, but today, when I went to uninstall 10.12 prior to updating to 11.1, I couldn't remember how I'd done the uninstall last time. I didn't see the ATI driver in the control panel's uninstall section (just saw ATI Catalyst Install Manager), so I used the Device Manager like a previous poster. But things didn't seem right, because my desktop didn't change to the crude look it should have had with just the windows basic display drivers.

Then when I ran the 11.1 driver package it launched the ATI Catalyst Install Manager which had the option to uninstall or install, so I selected uninstall. I could see that it removed a bunch more files, and when it completed, the crude looking display was there like I had remembered from my first driver uninstall back in November.

So went ahead and ran the 11.1 full driver package again, this time selecting install, and after completing, I OK'd the reboot and job done. I think the ATI Catalyst Install Manager, included in the full driver package I think, does the most complete uninstall because it should know where all the pieces are located. I don't see a need for a program like drive sweeper in this case.
