I "updated" my system yesterday evening with the latest drivers from ATI, only to spend half the night trying to get LW to run. LW will launch, draw the toolbars and the borders, but when it attempts to initialize the viewports, my system locks up hard.. I couldn't even CtrlAltDel out; I had to press the reset button on the front of my box.
The only way I was finally able to get LW to run at all was to disable much of the hardware acceleration. Has anyone else successfully installed the Catalyst 3.9 drivers and still been able to run LW?

My system specs:
Windows 2000
AMD Athlon XP 1800+
Radeon 9600, 256 MB DDR
512 MB DDR RAM

I "downgraded" to Catalyst version 3.7 , and now LW runs fine without locking up the system. Guess I won't be upgrading ATI drivers anytime soon.
