Windows Explorer crashes when trying to create a VPN Connection in Windows 7

I have Windows 7 32 Bit Enterprise Edition on Domain.
I am connecting to the Internet using a Local Wireless AP.
I have Sonicwall Net Extender SSL VPN to connect to my Domain Remotely and it works perfectly fine.

Currently i need to set up a Point to Point VPN.
To do that i go to Network and Sharing Center.
Click on Setup a New Connection or Network.
As soon as I click on Connect to a workplace, my Windows Explorer crashes.

Any Suggestions here?

rasgcw.dlll is the faulty module.

You might need to use WINPE (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=696DD665-9F76-4177-A811-39C26D3B3B34&displaylang=en) to boot up and be able to change the file over.

You have three options:

1) Run Windows 7 repair via command line (http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-repair-windows-7-system-files/)

2) Try and replace the file, either with the machine on if possible or remove the drive and copy a known working file from another machine and register

3) Rebuild your machine

This file is critical to getting a VPN connection working.

Did the First option. It seemed to repair something but still no avail on the VPN Issue.
Second option - Which file are you talking about.
Third option - Last option ... But not in my list ... too much to loose :(
