Easy, blacklist it in your modules section, depending on what kind of distro you have and the kernel will not load that driver.

Might work for Linux, but not Windows...

At least ATI's driver uninstall good. If it were Nvidia, you would have to use a driver cleaner.

Yeah you can, but all you really need is the video driver.
