    Not to scare anyone but I removed my catalyst drivers yesterday and installed this update and my keyboard/mouse stopped working, lol... I was able to play with Will for about 10 minutes before restarted to apply the driver updates. I'll be working on the comp tonight to restore the driver issues.

    You know, when I had my 7950, every time I updated the Catalyst software, it would crash my logitech programs. I have no idea what caused it but it happened every single time. Usually took a restart of the PC and everything was fixed.

    I was able to fix it through RDP from another system, removed all catalyst drivers, restarted and installed the new driver. Then, I just removed my USB drivers, ran a scan and they reinstalled successfully which made my mouse and keyboard start working again. I think it's because I have an AMD chipset so when I messed with the catalyst it jacked up the chipset drivers.
