Catalyst utility no where to be found with latest driver update

I just installed the latest driver set (not beta) for my AMD system. The drivers were for my desktop computer's: Asus Sabertooth 990A, FX 8350 cpu, and my R 390x video card. My operating system is Windows 7 64-bit.


I use to have the catalyst icon in the lower right hand corner, where you find the date, time, networking icon, sound icon, etc... Now, I have no icon to click on to change a setting that keeps interrupting my gaming. When I press ctrl + alt and my left mouse button, my game promptly minimizes and my mouse cursor wants me to draw a line. So, I guess I have a three-fold question.


1) What is the name of the new "catalyst" software?

2) Why is my game minimizing and asking me to "draw a line"?

3) What option needs to be changed for this issue to go away?


Thank you for taking the time in reading and answering these questions. I hope the answers can help other people who are experiencing the same issue.
