Problem fixed. Keep in mind the problem existed before any changes were made to the system. Problem was either a driver or registry entry.
It didn't go away with a uninstall or reinstall of the latest ATI Catalyst drivers 10.8. Reason was the uninstaller was not removing everything. Drivers and Registry entries were still there for Vista to see.
To Resolve this problem used "Driver Sweeper". It goes in and removes those things that the uninstaller leaves behind.
Once this is complete, Reboot the system, then install the lastest Catalyst drivers for your card.
For those of you with ATI Mobility cards, the 10.8 drivers work and also removes the message about old drivers.
Here is the link for Driver Sweeper
