I've recently tested a graphics card on a machine that required different drivers than my onboard integrated graphics, so I had catalyst control center installed.

After I pulled out the graphics card and went back to using the onboard graphics, I deleted the catalyst center through control panel -> programs.. which was fine.

But apparently it didn't really remove it. it doesn't show up under programs anymore but when I reboot windows I get an error saying "The catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter" and its still in the process bar...

how do I permanently remove it?

its a windows vista 32bit work computer and that didn't work.. grrr.. its annoyning cause it told me everything was fine, I reinstalled the catalyst center.. then I did a completely removal and it asked if I wanted to remove the catalyst center aswell.. I ofc selected that option and it uninstalled and closed the program and told me it was done with succes now I boot up its back in the processbar.. and its telling me again that I don't have a card that supports the catalyst center – Allan Jun 20 '12 at 8:08
Is your onboard integrated graphics 'card' also ATI? – HaydnWVN Jun 20 '12 at 14:24

I've read here about 'Revo Uninstaller' which may help you. Failing that there are other instructions here regarding manually removing the Catalyst drivers and registry entries after uninstalling.

Here is a Microsoft install/uninstall troubleshooter which may also work. Goodluck!
