i recently installed ati catalyst drivers to allow me to play a game without the textures flashing. i upgraded from catalyst driver 3.5 to 4.3 from the website. However now whenever i start my computer up the folder where the driver was installed keeps coming up. this is the "C:\ATI" folder. in this folder is a "SUPORT" folder which is where the drivers were installed. how can i stop the folder from popping up after every restart?

START | RUN | MSCONFIG
Select Selective Startup
Uncheck all, but systray and explorer (if listed) reboot and see If this fixes it, go back and recheck on at a time
you can also go to start -->run and type msinfo32 check software environment, startup, and running tasks

Well I'm sorry that you failed to understand my instructions. Perhaps someone will come along and explain it better than I.

Shakoor_h,

Removing the ATI entry from MSCONFIG will not affect the driver performance by any means. Hence uncheck the entries and restart the computer and check if that helps.

Anything removed from the Startup is available for use at a later time.

I believe that relevant information was posted in this link. I would split the points between rbkumaran and myself.
