After uninstalling a problematic anti-virus program (Norton) i had to restart my PC, when it rebooted i was shown 2 error boxes

Box 1:

When I entered the AW Command center neither the light or thermal control panels were working, both blank. I tried updating but it says i have the latest version.
I considered uninstalling and reinstalling the command center but i thought i would seek other advice first.

System:
AW Aurora R4
CPU I7
Ram 16GB

Thanks in Advance for any help

I'd uninstall and reinstall the CC - Takes about 3 minutes. I used Revo uninstaller pro, it also lets you do a search for left over registry additions.

As I', sure you know, the thermal settings are mediocre at best on the r4 with ambient sensors 1/2 working etc.. About once a week I have to unplug and drain the power before restarting to get all the sensors working. When it works, it works great...
