grep reports fglrx still in use. Ubuntu 14.04


I updated to the fglrx for my radeon card and regret it. Constant lockk ups. I can't seem to purge the drivers. Got lost on the way apparently.

I want the old drivers back and cant revert. Old drivers were the ones installed.
I have constant lock ups with the fglrx.

Here is my output.

lshw -c I get

lspci grep tells me fglrx_pci
I have tried to purge these.
Is there any fix?
