Workaround for ATI GUI slowdown

Go the the ATI site driver downloads section and select the appropriate OS/graphic card. This will (most likely) link you to the d/l for the current Catalyst 4.4 drivers. At the bottom of that page is a link to "Previous driver versions". D/L the Catalyst 3.7 driver package. Run the EXE and it will ...
