I have a notice from the server (which I now realize I can't cut & paste for some reason so I'll type it in. grrrrrrr
AMD/ATI GPU: Update to the latest driver to process tasks using your computer's GPU.
I have looked all over the Advanced UI and I cannot find a spot where it allows me to update the drivers. I did find a button <Update> under the Projects tab, but that apparently just updates my stats.
How do I update to the latest drivers w/o having to reinstall the entire package all over again (which caused problems the last time)?

You get drivers from the GPU manufacturer's web site. It's not a function that you do within BOINC.
So go to http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx, fill in the details about your videocard and operating system, download the appropriate drivers and install those.
Or use http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista64.aspx for a more direct approach. Download only the Catalyst Software Suite and install that.
Expect at least one reboot.
