I installed a VPN client yesterday, a Cisco product. I’m not sure of the version because I uninstalled it already. Why? Well, it made XP…weird. Instead of a big blue screen when I logged off, I got a little box, kind of like the login box from Win 2000. Same with logging on a boot up. Also, a few of my IM programs were screwy as well as my inet connection. What the hell is up with that? I might expect similar results from some free VPN client off of download.com or something, but Cisco?
Unfortunately, I need to get this VPN client to work but I’m nervous about it.
a) Should I be concerned?
b) Are there any steps I can take to avoid it messing with my OS?
c) Has anyone else used this particular client and just lived with the changes it makes to XP?
