    They are only WDM drivers, as you might have noticed, ati drivers
    generally are over 10 MB big...

    WDM drivers are like a small 2d core of the drivers to give windows
    the ability to run the cards without drivers installed ..ofcourse...
    no 3d, no OpenGL, no... ya know it!

    Do NOT install them, or install them and update your videodrivers

    They are a landmine that will screw your video drivers up and good, never
    download drivers recommended by Windows Update, only operating system
    software and patches.

    Agree with the below post. I downloaded Windows Update drive and screwed-up
    an otherwise perfectly operating All In Wonder program. If it ain't broke,
    don't fix it!
