Launching Cisco Client has slowed down considerable since installing Windows Live OneCare. Any ideas why?

Since installing Windows OneCare on my Laptop and on a PC, the launching of Cisco Cient can take up to 6 minutes on the Laptop and up to 3 mins on the PC.Any idea what might be causing this?

Yes thanks, I've tried that. First I uninstalled the Cisco Client and re-installed it but it made no difference.  I then removed Windows Onecare and ran the Cisco Client and it worked instantly. Lastly, I re-installed OneCare and it has slowed down to 6 minutes to Launch it again.

It sounds stupid, but what happens if you uninstall/deactivate Windows OneCare?

OneCare is an integrated protection system, like an antivirus+firewall+backup+etcetcetc.... I belive you don't need it or you can use other software which will not cripple your CISCO VPN client..
In a couple of words: uninstall it

Will have to put up with slowness as I have bought and paid for Onecare
