Bradley - First, many thanks again for this post - have used it twice in the past and wish to use it again for the latest ATI - AMD driver update to my ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. (Just downloaded 12-6-legacy_xp32_dd_ccc_whql.exe , but I'll wait for your answer below before I run it.)
However, seems that your post is now written for Win 7, but my PC is still WinXP Pro SP3. I don't have everything in your post.
Please advise if I am correct about the following:
Your line 6 - don't have "Program Data" - skip
Your line 8 - don't have "Program Files (x86)" - skip
Your lines 9 - 14 - doesn't appear like this in XP. I think what you mean for Win XP is to go into C:\Documents and Settings, and then, for each user, check (a) the Application Data folder, (b) the Local Settings folder (if any) AND (c) any Application Data subfolder in the Local Settings folder, and delete all ATI and AMD folders in each case.
Your lines 20-21 and again 25-26 - don't have "Wow6432Node" - skip
Your lines 34 - 36 - don't have precisely that long number. I have three keys with three slightly different long numbers - so do the same thing in those.
Was there anything else in your old instructions that doesn't appear anymore in your new instructions?
Thanks again !
ADDED IN EDIT:
Well, the above seems to work - no BSOD last day and a half. Another tip - to find the folders named with ATI or AMD, you can do a folder search in Windows Find by typing WindowsKey + F, selecting Folder as what you're looking for, setting the advanced settings to pick up all hidden and systems folders, search separately for ATI and then AMD, and then sort each set of results in alphabetical order. After I did that and deleted the ATI and AMD folders, I checked manually and didn't find anything. That still leaves the registry of course.
