    Catalyst download

    Do you have an older version installed now ?
    What version ?
    Did you list your card description right ?
    Your download is just an update,not the complete install.
    Start with your cd complete version.
    I also notice you have a lot running like Nortons.
    First,use save to Desktop not install and close your browser and Nortons.
    Then dbl click the download.
    I have ATI Radion 9600,no problem updateing from 5.1

    I wonder if your Norton anti-virus interfered. I usually turn my anti-virus off before installing programs or graphics drivers.

    hmm yea that could be a possibility but i had this problem before i installed NIS 2007.

    Did you have some other anti-virus program installed before? I guess my point is if an anti-virus runs an automatic scan, update or similar at the same time you are trying to install something, that could cause a problem. I'm just speculating on a possible cause since I have no way of knowing for sure.

    Ok

    Glad you got it done.Not sure if i had anything to do with the install
    problem.But always use save,not install.I think it's best to close your browser and turn off Vscan temporarily as mine calls it.Fix-It.
