| Cisco VPN Client. If you have Cisco VPN installed for access to office/client networks, you would know. If you know nothing about it, then disable the service in Computer Management, as it could potentially be a trojan horse. Aussie Ben|

| I use Cisco's VPN client, and it only shows up when I activate it, and then only for the period of time between initial login and when autheticated and connected. After that, it goes away. If it displays any other activity, or if you are not using Cisco VVPN CLient - get rid of it FAST. cnejack|
