Hey newbtoob, simply download the latest drivers directly from the ATI website. When you are ready to install, right-click on the downloaded file and select "Run as Administrator"...

That should cut it nicely for you and give you the latest version right off the bat!

Troy

(p.s. I am assuming this is not with Mac OSX as listed under your stats!!!)
