OCWorkBench reports ATI's Catalyst 10.7 drivers can cause problems with SiSoft Sandra 2010 on some systems:
If you have been using an Intel X58 system running Windows 7 x32/x64, you might have experience this strange problem. The SiSoft Sandra 2010 Lite edition benchmark will fail when run after Catalyst 10.7 is installed onto the system. The problem can be replicated on X64 Win 7 too.
Uninstall the ATi Catalyst driver and use the system supplied ATi WDDM driver solved the problem. Post your experience in the forums.

What??? ATI drivers still stink? You don't say!!!
It's all fine and good to release a driver every couple of weeks, but they are all garbage. They may, and don't always, fix a big or two, but the quality is abysmal and they still have a list of bugs a mile long that haven't been, and maybe can't be, addressed.
ATI has had years to get this right. And now, when their hardware is at the pinnacle of it's market, their driver writers are coming across as the laziest most horrible quality control folks I've ever seen. Read around the web! The bugs are all over the drivers. This is far from the only one.
It's ridiculous and it has to stop. ATI is going to sink into oblivion over it in the years to come, and they'll probably point the blame at Intel again.
