but now i have this issue where i see 2 nvidia control panels and i cannot get rid of the blank one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks very much :)

I ran Ccleaner and the blank version of nvidia control panel is still there.

are there specific sections of Ccleaner i have to tick in order to remove this dead icon from my control panel?

Driver sweeper also works well for cleaning out leftovers. Hope it takes care of it for you.
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Edit- Run it in windows safe mode for best results and make sure to uninstall the drivers from add/remove programs in the control panel before running the cleaner
