need to alter a cisco vpn client script to answer "OK" to a popup error message

I use scripts to automatically start and stop cisco vpn client sessions. They both work fine except that the stop script never closes the client. It WILL disconnect the session like its supposed to but the client it still running and there is a popup on the screen that tells the date and time of the disconnection. You have to click "OK" to get rid of it before the application closes. My problem is, if you DON'T click "OK" to this message then my start script the next day will fail with error "Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by Client. Reason 413: User authentication failed." Is there a piece of code that will allow me to have the script answer the "OK" to the disconnection message? Doing this would resolve my issue.

Using VBScript you can do:
oShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"

Better still, if the window has a title bar with text in it you can use something like:
Do While oShell.AppActivate("Title Bar Text")=False
   WScript.Sleep 500
Loop
oShell.SendKeys "{enter}"

If you don't like VBScript (why???) then use something like AutoIt:
