[SOLVED] Catalyst Control Center error after virus.

Yesterday my computer was infected with the Alureon.FE trojan. I was able to remove it easily and didn't have any problems.... Until today when I logged back in to windows I received an error stating: "Catalyst Control Center host application has stopped working". So I uninstalled everything to do with AMD/ATI, ran driver sweeper and driver cleaner pro, then reinstalled the same Catalyst version I had before (11.11). Still the error persisted. I uninstalled again and this time installed Catalyst 12.1. No change. I have noticed if I run Catalyst Control Center as an admin, everything works fine. Any suggestions?

I wonder if the permissions to either to a directory or registry key has been altered. Is Catalyst installing clean with no error messages?

Any error messages in event viewer for when you try to run it or when the system starts up?

Glad it worked out. I've encountered similar driver related issues multiple times when resolving virus/malware problems.
