No-no! Most important step is to swing CM15A on USB cable above head while hopping on left foot. There was a chant to be recited also, but I forgot what it consists of. Without the chant it probably won't recover.

Seriously did you try uninstalling and reloading AHP, in case you have a corrupted file? (I guess it is unlikely you have corrupted files on two computers...sigh)
It is a little wierd that both failed CM15A and security failed at same time. Have you had any storms, or surges, etc. ?
