I am having an issue connecting to a Microsoft VPN from a Windows 7 PC from my home.  The VPN works for other Windows 7 PCs.  My home router where the PC is located is configured corrected as my laptop works.  I have tried every combination of settings that can be configurred on the client.  I logged a connection and it appears this is a security related issue on the PC.

You can only have 1 PC connected to a single VPN endpoint from behind a router that does not understand GRE (most standard ADSL routers)  Also, try manually setting the VPN type to PPTP.
