hi to all


I downloaded the Windows XP version of ATI mean AMD Catalyst 7.5. When I tried to install it, I passed the EULA and the Express/Custom part, and then it had the little growing bar thing with "ATI Display Setup is preparing to...". And then it had a error labeled "Severe: Setup will only run in administrator mode. Setup is aborting". I'm pretty sure my one and only account is an administrator because I've had no problems installing anything with it for the past year. What the [bleep]?

Check which version of .net framework you need, you can have 1.1 - 2.0 and 3.0 installed. If it isn't .net framework you could ask ATI support

The advice from ATI is to install the drivers which came with the card, and only update those if you have problems

I stll use the original drivers with one, and have 6.1 with another

If you have problems installing other updates

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD

Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

Download and install Tune Up 2007 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this

Check the anti virus is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
