    I got two errors above and try to solve them without my success. My computer is slow, and several programs say "not responding" for a while until what they caught finally upward.  It seems that I have a driver problem. Any advice?

    Hello riondet,.

    Thank you for using the Microsoft Windows Vista Forums.

    How long did you receive these error messages?   Did you change your operating system before thses errors?  All new software/hardware installed or new Windows updates?

  • How can I fix windows 7 Catalyst control center host application has stopped working

    I received the error: Catalyst Control Centre: host application has stopped working. I uninstalled the Device Manager Catalyst Control Center and restarted - after uninstall and reboot I got the same message saying: Catalyst Control Center: the host application has stopped working - I also checked for driver updates in the Device Manager and the device manager says my driver updates are up-to-date.

    I just received a response from AMD for a known issue with Catalyst Control Center and Windows 7.  You can go there.  It worked for me the first time after a lot of troubleshooting.

    How to solve the CCC is not loading/opening at initialization.

    Scenario: the user tries to open/load the CCC through different methods, but it does not load. The problem may occur without any changes to the system or a Catalyst driver update or reinstall. This is issue mainly affects Windows 7 machines.

    Cause: possible corruption of the Windows Global Assembly Cache (GAC). Usually, this requires the user to format and reinstall Windows.

    Resolution: this solution has been tested - reproduced and resolved.

    Remove all the ATI through programs and features in Control Panel using the Manager to install Catalyst (GPC). Restart the system in safe mode and follow these steps:

    -Remove all ATI C:\programs files files and the C:\programs files (x 86)

    -Go to the C:\Windows\assembly and sort by "public key token. Locate the following key token public "90ba9c70f846762e" which is

    -associated with ATI. Usually only 2 entries. Remove 2 entries. Note: entries should be deleted (right click and select uninstall) since regular safe mode

    -mode may cause a permissions error. 2 entries appear only in the systems concerned by this issue. This means that you want the 2 inputs on systems where the CCC charges, the entries do not exist.

    -Close and restart normally.

    -Reinstall the ATI Catalyst package.

    I hope that you will get in working order!
