Cant stop Windows 7 installing own grapgics driver

  aca 20:50 02 Feb 2011

Trying to put on new catalysts but after removing existing windows driver (for an X700), after rebbot before I can install new driver the old one reinstalls. You cant click and stop as it installs like I can with XP.
Have tried:

1)Installing over top and doesnt work
2)Changed settings so it wont install from update
3)tried to enter group settings editor but think have wrong version of windows 7 and wont run.

getting very frustrated

Install driversweeper and run it in Safe mode after running the catalyst uninstall process first click here

Switch automatic updates off and then try it.
or switch off your internet connection and do it that way.

no joy

and seems to be a problem with windows 7 home versions.

Have spent considerable time googling but cant find solution to this

What version of the driver is shown in the Catalyst Information Centre? What problems/error messages are you getting?

Are you sure you're downloading the correct driver for Windows 7?

I assume that your getting an error message when the install fails, does it give more information about what the problem is?

thanks all fiddled and got it to install

only prob now is that the game my son was trying to play (Minecraft) comes up with error re bad video drivers and fix is to adjust the hardware acceleration but greyed out in Windows 7 and cant adjust in CCC.

Think its down to catalyst drivers. The cards X700 SE so would have thought it would work
