I love WIndows 7 but there is one thing which really winds me up.
I have a number of customers who I support by connecting via PPTP VPN. I have set this up in Windows 7 just fine and it all works.
The trouble comes when I have a problem connecting. This can either be whilst setting a VPN up or if I reboot the server at the other end and try to connect whilst it's offline.
What happens is that if I try to connect and I cancel the attempt I can never get to connect again as there is no connect option on that VPN. In fact there are no options on the VPN - neither connect nor disconnect, only the ability to edit the connection. I also get the spinning icon over the network icon in the bottom right. If I look in network connections this VPN is connecting, but I can't stop it trying.
There is some debris left on the screen - it the icon which moves between monitors which appeares in the top right of the "connecting..." box. This is left on the screen but doesn't do anything.
If I kill off explorer.exe and restart it I can disconnect the connection and regain control.
Is this just a bug in Windows 7 or is there a fix ?
