Cisco vpndownloader.exe using 97% of cpu
Posted on 2012-04-07
I recently installed CISCO AnyConnect VPN Client Version 2.5.3055 on Windows XP.
Sometimes when I start it up, I get error messages from vpndownloader.exe
Sometimes when AnyConnect is running, vpndownloader.exe uses over 95% of the CPU (according to taskmgr.exe), and thus slows my system down to a crawl.
(I either get the error messages OR the cpu problem, not both.)
What is vpndownloader?
Does AnyConnect need it?
Can I disable it?
