Blex's FREE ATI Driver Catalyst Control Center Post-Install Cleanup Utility

Here is a small .BAT file I made to clean up the useless garbage files and directories installed every time I would upgrade my ATI graphics card drivers. Surprisingly, my internet searches for finding an ATI file-cleaner list or program always turned up nothing. As a result, I decided to make my own list and program!

This is very easy to use program! After installing or upgrading your ATI CCC drivers, simply download the .BAT file below and run it! Then, POOF!! 178 MB of totally useless shit files that ATI installs to your hard drive get immediately removed. The pre-install folder C:\ATI also gets the full delete! The files don't even go in the lame recycle bin!

I know that this utility doesn't free up a ton of additional hard drive space. But, if you have a solid-state hard drive and want a little more hard drive space free then you may find this utility useful. Or, if you are like me in having too much free time and being totally OCD about not having useless crap files on your hard drive, then you too should find this utility useful!

As you may have already noticed, I know JACK SHIT about programming and creating windows utilities. So I wrote the utility as a good ol' DOS .BAT file! I'm pretty sure the ATI CCC files installed and paths are the same for thousands of different ATI video cards. So, the potential growth for this utility is unlimited! If this proves fruitful and popular, I may even find more useless files to delete on other programs and even windows itself. If anybody wants to take the file and folder list and toss it into a GUI utility feel free to do so. Or, if you know of other files that can be deleted post-install, let me know.
I tested this on an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics card on an Acer Aspire 7551G-6477 laptop.



2/26/2013 - YES, IT WORKS UP TO VERSION 13.1 !!! For my obviously non-stop dedication to updating this page (hardly ever since 2011) I am taking donations (minimum of $10,000) on PayPal. Contact me for details!! If you don't sense my sarcasm by now you are a lamer.

10/12/2012 - VERIFIED TO WORK WITH VERSION 12.8 !! FREE UP THAT HARD DRIVE SPACE !!! PRIZE !! For the next 5 people who download and find the program useful you get a free I-Pad !! All you gotta do is contact me and let me know!!

8/4/2012 - DAMN !! This page is getting more and more hits. Remember, if YOU or somebody YOU know is interested in making a GUI for this program let me know !!! I'm sure people would feel more comfortable downloading an EXE instead of a BAT file to clean up the ATI shit !! I tested and updated the byte count and .BAT file to clean up even more shit. The total is now about a quarter gig that ATI bloats you with !! HELL, this took me like 30 minutes to calculate. So much so, it's worthy of a VERSION NUMBER CHANGE. I'm going from .0002 to a full 2.0 !!

5/30/2012 - I JUST REALIZED that the .BAT file works just fine up to most recent version 12.4 !!! Plus, I've seen (at maximum) a few users ending up here from search engines. Hell, even some of them are downloading and I'm going to assume finding the .BAT file actually useful. Thus, I'll update when needed and if a programmer is interested then can make a GUI version of the .BAT and we can then bask in the glory of an early retirement when gazillions of dollars roll in when a big company picks up the program !!!

2/2/2012 - FUCK THIS !!! I get like 1 hit to this page a month.. TOPS! I think 3 people downloaded the .BAT file since 6/27/2011. To the disappointment of the future population of the entire world, I will not be updating this page anymore !!!

10/7/2011 - UPDATE!!! - TESTED on Catalyst Control Center 11-6 to 11-9 and the amazing .BAT file above still works and eliminates the useless shit files!

6/27/2011 - Version .0002 Released !!!

Also, if you're like me you probably run one of the greatest programs ever made in CCleaner to clean up junk files on your system. After running this .BAT file, run the registry cleaner in that program, and watch as the deleted files' registry entries get removed!

Here is the file list of directories and files removed...
