I have performed a clean install of Windows 7 x64 and applied all available Windows updates and drivers to a new computer. Using the Dell direct download here
, I proceed to install the latest release of the VPN client for 64-bit Windows.
At this point, I connect the computer to the domain and cache a user profile. Once the user profile is fully cached, I log in as the user and proceed to establish a connection to the VPN. However, the computer encounters a BSOD as soon as I elect to start the connection. I do not experience this issue logged in as another domain or local user account on the same computer, only when logged in as this user.
I cleared the local Dell SonicWall VPN cache and can then successfully establish a connection to the VPN as the affected user, and have created a local logon script to delete that directory to prevent any further interruption. This is not the ideal configuration, nor does it solve this problem.
It seems that this issue is specific to this profile, but I am not certain. This is one of three computers on which this user has experienced this event. Is there anything that can be done to fix this without recreating the profile, or is creating a fresh profile for this user the best way to proceed? Are there alternate solutions to this issue?
