    Most Win7 drivers must work, but 'cause of the new kernel in 7955 ATi Catalyst from v10.3 to v11.4 doesnt work (11.5 works fine)

    Flight Simulator 2004 (Fs9) works, but it seems to mess with the DWM when it exits, the Taskbar animations stop working, and it looks like an open app is closed, and vice versa, basically they get "frozen" as they were when the game was exited, a quick logoff/logon fixes that though.

    I think my ATI Catalyst may be 11.4 <.< I can't install my graphics driver on it. But, it makes sense at least.

    Also, my IDT beats audio installed but I can't open the control panel for it. In fact, none of my drivers installed. o.o
