    Hi Guys,

    I have an issue where I am trying to start my VPN and continually get the following message:

    Error 56: The Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Service has not been started. Please start this service and try again.

    So I have been into Services to 'start' Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Services - this then always comes up with this error:

    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

    The solution mentioned on other posts on disabling the ICS didn't help me as it was already disabled. When I try to start VPNGUI I also get error 56 and when I try to use services.msc to start the service I get error 1053. Then also when I try to start from task manager services(cvpnnd) i get access denied.

    Please any suggestions would be much appreciated as I really need this tomorrow!! :)

    Thanks!!

    PS. I recently installed jZip - I am assuming this is unrelated? But it stopped working afterwards so just want to check...
