Trojans: ATI Catalyst Control Center

This question is answered

I have a Dell XPS 8300 with Windows 7. My computer was infected with several trojans yesterday. Each time I scanned with different software, I would find more trojans. My computer is running fine so I hope it's clean now, but will continue to monitor.

However, whenever I boot up, I now get a dialog box that says:

ATI Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working.

I went into my Device Manager, and nothing seems amiss. Why am I getting this alert, and what can I do to repair the problem?

Thank you.
