mobile user vpn uninstall

safenet uninstallation failed by paulyt
Posted: 28 Nov 03

I have had this problem many times, tried all of the fixes on Watchguard, and the tek-tips with no success.What I have done before is format & start again BUT then I remembered one trick ..... XP Sytem Restore.The reason the WG uninstall fails is because it is active when you try & uninstall (yes we all forget sometimes !) so the best thing to do is system restore to a few days ago (or last known working date), you do not lose any data, but you get back to either working VPN or broken VPN but able to  de-activate the sw and uninstall again.
I write this after doing it on my machine and it took 5 minutes start to finish and what do you know it is working like a dream.
Any comments/feedback or questions invited.
