Brother, First of all Big Thumbs Up for the solution..installed it on my Windows 8 x64 and after resolving ‘mmc could not create the snap in’ as per Ur given solution I was able to start Group Policy Editor.. Actually I have to restrict bandwidth usages by BITS for an specific time bcoz it slowed my connection speed..I’ve BITS version 7 installed on my PC & I read that this Group Policy Editor will work with version 2. However I resolved the issue via regedit but want to know whether this version of Group Policy Editor is the adequate version for a windows 8 laptop & whether it will able to tweek settings or not..

I have re-tried the steps in the same order mentioned above, however, I don't see a option 'Reset network adpter.... ' upon clicking on Diagnose. It just returns that there were no issues found. I have also added the Registry entry mentioned above using the Admin privilages. Now, when I rebooted the machine and tried to connect again. It errors out with 'Error 56: The Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Service has been not started. Please start this service and try again'. I see that this service is set to start Automatically but not started. So, I did start it manually. When I try to run the again, the serivce is stopped and the same error is returned.
