Cisco VPN Client - Blue Screen - Windows XP

HI

As above.  We have tried versions 5.0.07.0290 & 5.0.07.0410, with and without anti-virus (sophos 10) and the machine has all windows updates.

Ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The VPN client has it's own firewall built in which can be disabled by renaming the extensions of two files in c:\windows\system32 called vsdata and vsdatant.  Just append .old onto the file and give that a shot.

Were you able to acquire the message that Bluescreened?

In device manager you can also disable the vsdatant this way
"devices by connection" in the device manager, then select "view"> "show hidden devices".
from the right panel near the bottom, you can find it, right click the "vsdatant" then select disable. Reboot and try again.
