why isn't amd  able  to  delete all its own drivers  and  catalyst programs entirely if its  able  to load them on? third party programs  suck  and  mess up  our  computers. we shouldn't have  to practically  reformat  our  computers  monthly  for  the  updates!

When you download a new driver set and start the process, it asks you do you want to uninstall the old ones..and will do it. #2 AMD uninstall tool. A large percentage of user do not uninstall the older before installing the new...install over the top of the old ones.

There is lots of good info in the FAQ section.
