    HI there,
    Every time I log in to my XP Pro laptop an improperly uninstalled
    Cisco VPN client starts installing again. I already uninstalled and
    installed it but still keeps coming up, what can I do? Thank you, T

    If your installation for Cisco is a .msi file (Windows Installer) then
    something is removing a file that your Cisco VPN needs and so Windows
    Installer detects it and attempts to re-install. There are two things that
    you can do depending on the conditions:

    1 - If the VPN is working correctly if you cancel out of the installation
    (this will take some doing for it will keep attempting to install). You can
    use Windows Installer Cleanup utility to remove the installation from the
    database and it will not annoy you again. This is a stop gap solution.

    2 - Find out what file(s) that are being removed and which program is
    removing it then stop that program from removing the file(s).
