Somehow last month my grandson installed A M D Catalyst Install Manager on my PC. He doesn't recall doing so (!!) and I don't know why it is there.

What is this, please? I run Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9 and have Avira Free Anti-Virus, Zone Alarm, MalWareBytes Anti Malware, Super AntiSpyware Professional installed plus Microsoft's own Security Essentials.

My PC seems to be running slower than usual and I am beginning to wonder if A M D is the cause.

If you are able to offer advice I would be really grateful.

My THANKS in advance!

It's your video card driver.

If you're so inclined you can uninstall the Install Manager. If and or when you need to update video card drivers. You can install the Install Manager again to update.
