Have you tried to un-install the driver and control panel using the cat-uninstaller tool from click here .

The new 4.1 drivers have just come out today, try using them.
After you have downloaded the new drivers, un-install the old ones using the un-installer tool, reboot, when asked to find drivers cancel the installation and then manually install them from your downloaded drivers.

You could also try using the smartgart-uninstaller as well, as this can cause problems with some systems.
