Default darn catalyst drivers

right, here goes:

this morning, i decided that i wanted to control the fan on my X800GTO, and get accurate temperature reads. to do this, I had to install the asus "enhanced" catalysts. i removed ALL of the old stuff, and so installed the new asus drivers from scratch. when i restarted the asus tool for viewing temeratues etc said it could not function properly, due to the asus drivers not being installed.

so, i repeated the whole process, uninstall the lot, restart, install, restart, same thing. i then thought blow this, i will just put the regular catalysts back on. removed, restart, installed, restart, OK, i will try fear. plays fine. i then loaded the catalyst control panel, and it said:

"The necessary OpenGL extensions for showing the preview are not installed."

And the scection where it normally shows the car driving down the road was blank.

What exactly am I doing wrong here? It all seems so illogical.
