Recently D/L ATI driver Catalyst 3.10. An ATI icon placed itself in the system tray and I cannot remove it. Any ideas?

on the start menu go to run type in "msconfig" (without quotes) go to startup, and deselect the atiptaxx entry. then click apply close. then reboot your system. everything will still work from the programs menu but will not start up when booting up

Thanks. It worked. I also unchecked a couple of other things that don't need to be loaded on startup. When I rebooted I got a message saying the system was in diagnostic mode and I should return to the Startup tab and undo the changes. What is that about?

Thanks,

Chuck

HAppens evertime you change something in msconfig. Unless of course you restart everything it thinks you need but really dont. Just check the box that says dont show this at startup or words to that effect

If you open the ati control panel, there is an option to display or not to display the icon.

BTW the 4.1s are out; you might want to check out the newest driver. I just installed it this afternoon and everything seems to be working fine. Same score in 3DMark03.
