ATI Catalyst Drivers

After over an hr I am done installing the new ATI Catalyst Drivers.
I got the info that there was an update through a subscription to fileplanet weekly dated 10/14/05.
It says on the ATI website that you should download and run the uninstaller first to completely uninstall ALL ATI Software. So like a moron I did it and it took off the drivers and the DVR software and everything else with it, just like it said it would.
Next I downloaded the new drivers and installed them, but then I had to download all the other software for the DVR (ATI Multimedia Center) and for the Remote Wonder and all the other software that comes with the card.
Then I had to dig for the original software CD that came in the box with the card so it could be "validated".
Needless to say this was all a ***REAL PAIN IN THE ASS*** for something that should involve just a simple Driver update. INTELLIGENCE means you create an uninstaller program which uninstalls ONLY THE SOFTWARE THAT IS BEING UPDATED. JUST THE DRIVER. This VERY POOR customer service and software design on ATI's part.
