Windows 7 and IPSEC Cisco client issue


I am trying to fire up the client after a normal logon but I am receiving the following error from the Cisco IPSEC client:

"Error 56: The Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Service has not been started"

My platform is Windows 7 Professional on a Lenovo T400 unit, I tested other versions of this client wit same results, it works with no problem for XP machines for example.

Have somebody see this issue before? Any help will be appreciated!!
