Unable to uninstall VPN adapters

My company used to use Cisco 5000 VPN software to create the secure tunnel into the office. We have changed software now, but I cannot install the new client because althoug the Cisco software uninstalled itself, it did not remove the VPN adapters it added to my networking setting in Windows XP Pro.

I also cannot manually delete them because the system complains that the device may be required on boot up.

Any ideas how to remove these annoying adapters?

I would try reinstalling the same Cisco software (in the same location, with same settings) that was already installed and then do an uninstall again. The VPN adapters should be removed by the uninstall program.
