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

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.

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
