How To Remove Cisco Systems VPN Adapter From Network Connections

If you have recently removed the Cisco Systems VPN client from your Windows XP computer you may notice that it does not always uninstall the network adapter connection it created during install. When viewing your Network Connections you will notice there is still a Cisco Systems VPN Adapter connection that looks similar to the typical Ethernet adapter on your computer. You would think that the ability to remove this item should be as simple as right clicking the adapter in question and selecting Delete from the drop down howeverĀ  this is not the case. Don’t worry removing it is easy but you must do it from the Device Manager instead of the Network Connections interface.
