after installing the drivers of my video card (radeon hd 5770) i restarted the pc and i couldn't open any programs, i saw the desktop but no icons. taskmng.exe didn't even work. when i start the pc in safe mode and uninstall the video card it works fine. its a new video card so i cant go back to older drivers

this is a logfile i made with hijackthis in safe mode after installing the videocard

Make sure the Radeon driver is Windows 7 compatible & that you've disabled the on-board video controller (if your PC has one) in the BIOS. Failure to disable on-board video when using a separate video-card will result in a driver conflict. Most motherboard BIOS can automatically disable on-board VGA when required, but some require manual intervention.
