Hi Experts,

Thanks for reading. I am using Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07.0290 on Windows 7 x64. This has been working absolutely fine since I installed it. However, I added a new PCF file to it an it somehow froze up the VPN client, so I removed the process via Task Manager and everytime I open Cisco VPN, it just freezes up.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, repairing the installation, restarting, etc. multiple times.

Can someone please help me get Cisco VPN Client working again?

Thank you.

I'm not an expert on 5.0.07 but I do have 5.0.05 installed on a Win7 box.  Is the new .pcf file still there? (It should be in Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles.)  I'd remove the new one but make sure you have at least one there.

Thanks, jmeggers. The profile was indeed still there, so I removed it and tried it again, but it still froze up. I ran a repair on it, and it still froze up when opened.

I finally fixed this issue -

First, I uninstalled Cisco VPN Client. Then I deleted all contents in C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco Systems. I reinstalled Cisco VPN Client, and it finally worked again.

Accepted my own comment as solution because I had to figure it out by myself.
