Windows 7: Win 7 native VPN client broken

Win 7 native VPN client broken

Dear all,

I'm having troubles with the Win 7 native VPN-client.

Untill +- a week ago it worked fine. Now, when I click on one of my VPN-connections, the "sand glass" appears and processor is going wild (in a few seconds the fan goes from nothing to full).

The VPN-dialogue is very slow and non-responsive. It tries to connect, but in the end it breaks off with an error (different ones each time).

It looks like my VPN / RAS manager is corrupt. Is there a way to reinstall?

Kind regards,
Marco Visser

I also have this problem. I tried rolling back all updates during the time in which I noticed the issue but havent had any luck.

Fixed

I uninstalled the microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter from the device manager.

After a reboot the issue was fixed for me.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks for the tips. Deinstalling the virtual wifi adapter didn't work, however.

Native resolution
I just recently bought a brand new computer which forced me to switch from Vista to 7. It wasn't a bad change, just a bit overwhelmed by how things are set up now. The most annoying change is 7 will only give me two options when it comes to screen resolution. 1024x768 and 800x600. Both of...

Native Res Gone
It seems that for some random reason my native res of 1440x900 has vanished leaving me only 3 options. I currently can go no higher then 1024x768. This seemed to happen very randomly. I had gone to take a shower and when I came back my res was at 1024. It took me a second to realized this and I...
