Faith, I know it's stored in System32 folder but it seems like it has been modified and making confilcts. Maybe you have original file?

Rickmccl,

mariv I wanted to post that it does work so peeps will know. We can look at your issue if you want.

Original ndis.sys from W7.7000 is 700,680 bytes and dated 12/13/2008, 0200AM.

You might also find it in c:\windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-ndis_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7000.0_none_183111f35806a1f8.

WinSXS is the 'real' location of each file in c:\windows; a driver could replace the file in c:\windows\system32\drivers but it would not be able to change the one in winsxs.
Try:
cd \windows
dir /s ndis.sys

HTH,
Rick

I am sorry I am not able to access my Windows7 at this moment but I think you can restore it to the original point to get the unmodified file. I think you don't have to start from scratch again...

Rick,

Got same verison of ndis.sys with same date and size in both folders (System32/drivers & winsxs)
Additionally I've tried to install 5.0.04.xxx but again without success. Don't know what happened.

Basically I've made update from Windows 7 b. 6965 to 7000 (not fresh install) and it stopped working :|

Code:
C:\Windows>dir /s ndis.sys
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 786E-29C1
 Directory of C:\Windows\System32\drivers
2008-12-13  08:00           700 680 ndis.sys
               1 File(s)        700 680 bytes
 Directory of C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-ndis_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.
7000.0_none_183111f35806a1f8
2008-12-13  08:00           700 680 ndis.sys
               1 File(s)        700 680 bytes
     Total Files Listed:
               2 File(s)      1 401 360 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  58 321 756 160 bytes free
Any ideas guys?

Regards,

Mariv

I'm having the same issue as well. I installed Windows 7 (build 7000) on a T60p Lenovo laptop and everything runs fine. When I install the Cisco VPN Client it works until I reboot. When I reboot I get the BSOD referencing ndis.sys. I've tried everything suggested so far in this thread to no avail.

Right now I'm going through the process of installing a few different versions of the VPN Client so we'll see if any of them work.

Yup. I formatted the drive and installed it fresh.

I actually just figured out how to make it work though. Before I was just setting the installer to Vista Compatibility mode and it kept failing. This time, after installing v5.0.04.0300 and before rebooting, I set vpngui.exe to Vista Compatibility and then rebooted. It didn't blue screen and I can now use the VPN Client just fine.

If someone else can try this to verify that this is what actually worked, that'd be great!

Did you set C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\vpngui.exe to Vista Combatibility mode right after you installed it?
