Default Can't see nVidia control panel?

I just installed the drivers for my 8800gts (using it for physx and F@H) and I can't see nVidia control panel... any ideas why?

It sounds like your using a newer driver, Nvidia has disabled PhysX when using a ATI card. Try using an older driver.

Did you get them from Nvidia, or from some bogus site?
