Yeah because when we search in google "ATI drivers" the 1st result is a fake site called ati.official-drivers.com

I thought that it was a new design but later I notice the joke.

Just saying, dont be cheap and keep safe your customers. Oh and Im glad that now the driver install advises about raptr, I even bought a new ati card. Just saying, peace

And when you use Bing it brings up support.amd.com/en-us/download as the first result, so just don't use Google.

Same thing when you google driver sweeper. The first on the list is Guru 3D...and it offers a very old version..the version that caught the flac for borking the Windows 7 SP1 update.

too bad. However Guru 3D, if im not wrong is a reputate site. That ATI fake site looks a scam site, you download a unknow *.exe instad the drivers. 

Maybe ATI could/should sue that website for fraud.

Or you should read a newspaper, figure out that ATI was bought by AMD years ago, and a search for "AMD Drivers" or "Radeon Drivers" on google brings up support.amd.com/en-us/download

You should know that the reported website is cheating AMD customers, maybe people who dont read the newspaper, yeah there are people who dont read the newspaper, you did not know that?, dont care we learn something everyday. 

Anyway, seems that I dont need to change to Bing, that is cool.

And those same people have half a dozen toolbars, trojans, and other assorted crapware on their system. I take it you are one of them?
