Solved: Cannot open Catalyst Control Center
Firstly, I googled it and I can't find a solution for my problem.

Before re-installing the Windows there is no problem. It works fine.
After re-installing Windows XP, I installed just the CD of the graphic card HD3450. After the install when I try to open Catalyst Control Center, i got this message: "Could not load file or assembly 'MOM.Implementation' or one of its components.
After this, I downloaded and installed the latest version of the driver and CCC. Now I start Catalyst Control Center and nothing happens. No error message. I tried them to uninstall and reinstall many times but it didn't solve the problem.

Reinstalling removes many of the ATI components, including the driver, and replaces them with the Windows version.

Try uninstalling all ATI software, removing any remaining parts manually, and reinstalling the package.

By saying re-installing, I mean I formatted my HDD and installed the windows.

After remove everything, should I install the CD or the last version which is downloaded from ATI's site?

The most recent version from the site is a better choice than the CD. But, though newer versions solve some problems with previous ones, they also sometimes work better with newer hardware than the older hardware they are supposed to be backward-compatible with.

So, try the newest one for your card. But if you have any problems with that one, you might go into the ATI archives and try one that came out a little closer to the time you bought your card.

Generally, you do not need to uninstall the old driver to install the new one. So you can try that since your installation is new.

HUH! I have done it!
To be honest, I didn't understand why it runs and doesn't run.

Thank you so much! I uninstalled all the driver and CCC and other services of ATI, and I deleted the ATI folders manually. Then I restarted the computer and install the driver with Windows wizard, then run the last version of the driver and CCC. After the last restart, it started to run and it works. I hope I won't have any problem.
