Catalyst Control Center: Host Application has stopped working

This question is not answered

I keep getting this window popping up. Everything works fine, no crashes, just this window popping up.

I did a search and saw that it was related to my ATI 3450 card, but not much on what to do to fix it.

What do I do?

    Here's my specs. Running Vista. Am I supposed to uninstall and reinstall my drivers for the ATI card?

  • Unless you specifically need the CCC for some reason Ken, I'd suggest uninstalling the lot, and downloading/installing the drivers only Idea

    IME - the CCC is more bother than it's worth!

    From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

  • I also keep getting thid window popping up. likewise what is the fix?
