    Catalyst control centre host application has stopped worki


    1. I am having trouble with my computer. A message pops up that Catalyst control center: host application has stopped working. And my PC will inform me when it is working. The problem is that it slows down my computer and even after I think I have solved it it goes back to not working. The problem has caused me to not being able to use the internet. Also on occasion, when attempting to restart or shut down it took a longer time (I did not wait for it to complete I then manually shut it down).

Catalyst Control Center in Graphic Cards
I installed the newest version because my card (5770) is doing that auto-scaling thing they like to do, leaving black bars along all borders. It's easy to fix by just adjusting it in CCC, but when I open CCC there are no available settings for displays. Any idea what's up?
