SecuRemote seems to limit admin rights and connection to local net

Running WinXP Pro on one machine. Recently installed SecuRemote VPN client in order to access a customer computer.  Since installing it, I have the following problems--BIG TIME, and I'm pretty frustrated.

* Can't install ZoneAlarm or McAfee anti-virus software. Each gives me the message that I don't have administrator rights.  This happens even if I log on as administrator.  Even in safe mode.  Tried shutting down Securemote services that I could locate on the machine, but no luck. Even uninstalled Securemote and can't install either anti-virus program.   It also appears that some other applications don't "see" administrator rights sometimes.

* Though I can connect to the internet through my Lyncsys router, I have a terrible time trying to connect to another computer on the local peer to peer setup. I get a message that I may not have rights and that the workgroup is unavailable.  Through experimenting, sometimes I can get a connection, but can't figure out the secret. In any case, I can't consistantly connect to the network, though the other machines have no trouble, and can even "see" the Securemote computer, though they can't really connect to it.

check to see if this program added new things to your network adapter and uncheck them
any chance I can ask you why you gave a grade of C?
