Cisco VPN disconnect from local network

I recently installed VMWare player, after installation, my Cisco VPN would still work but no longer allow me to access the network LAN (shows disabled under statistics).

I found on google that the administrator's demand that i be disconnected from my own network might be causing this.

How can I restore the right settings?

It is definetly an issue with my machine, as I tried ShrewSoft VPN with the same connection and I don't have this problem.

Many Thanks!

We often seen issues with VPN software once VMware Workstation or VMware Player, or Oracle Virtualbox has been installed.

I have uninstalled VMware player and I don't see any left-over vmware adapters in networks.. could it be some setting elsewhere?

VMware leaves lots of entries in the registry.
