Please tell me if igfxtray.exe needs to be uninstalled after installing a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card?

Installation of the card requires the integrated card software to be uninstalled, before installing Radeon software and card.  I thought I had done this using windows uninstall; and Intle HD Graphics doesn't appear in programs anymore.  HOwever, Intel ® Extreme Graphics icon continues to appear in task tray; and igfxtray.exe is shown to be running by Windows Task Manager.  It appears still as Disabled start-up program in WinPatrol Plus.  Clicking on the task tray icon does not open the graphics control center; yet it's still there.  Lately the pc has been freezing...needs restarting.  i wonder if the Intel and Radeon graphics software is possibly causing the freezing.  Or is this Intel program needed for another component; like chipset?

Do I need to uninstall the Radeon software;

reinstall the intel integrated graphics software;

then uninstall the Intel using Revo uninstaller to make sure i get all?

then reinstall the card and software?

If the drivers for onboard video are installed but you are not using such...I would simply go into the BIOS and disable the onboard video.  That would prevent the drivers from even loading or coming into play at all.
