(ISSUE RESOLVED) I un-installed Catalyst Control Center which un-installed a few other thing

ZaneQ
*NOTE, THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN RESOLVED*

I un-installed Catalyst Control Centre, as it was taking up space, it kept making pop-ups saying it had stopped working. I also read somewhere (not Wikipedia) that Catalyst Control Centre was a virus so I un-installed it, which un-installed a few other things related to it one of them my Video Card which I now understand handles Screen Resolution, Colour Scheme, My Personalisation Colour Settings in Google Chrome and alot of other features that I'm just discovering. It lowered the Screen Resolution on my Laptop (zoomed it in a lot) and reset all my colour personalisations to the standard which I hate. I'm wondering if I should reset my computer to an earlier date or if I should download a new Video Card. I have downloaded the Catalyst Control Centre and what came with it but nothing has changed now, options in Control Panel > Appearance and Personalisation are missing which is what I used to make my settings and where it normally lets me change colours (I had chosen red) are all gone. The screen resolution is still a little low (which means its still a little zoomed in) in from what it was previously and how I liked it but at least I can still do what I need to (I use this computer mainly for Facebook and Games, my whole life revolves around the two of them, so for me it's essential that I fix this, It may not seem like a big deal to you but to me it is!) So should I reset my computer to an earlier date or download something or what. Just please help me. If I have to do a System Restore could someone please tell me where to go to do that or where I can find out?
I am using a Windows Vista Business 32-bit. Thanks guys, -Zane.

    And is the control center for it. All that you should need do is download your ATI Video Card Drivers and install them.

    Of course if you stop using Face Book and so on you are likely to be far more secure in any On Line Life you have as it's extremely insecure and leaves yourself wide open for abuse.

    Also everything you post to FB becomes the property of FB so you are effectively giving everything that you post to it away. I'm really glad that you are so generous as FB is such a Poor Company with such a small revenue base so they need everything that you give them.

    Yes I have went to ATI's website and downloaded Catalyst and everything else, it didn't restore or fix anything, its done nothing since I downloaded it again, it's like its not even there,
