Cisco VPN after Windows 7 Update

2 weeks ago I have updated my laptop to Windows 7 and today I wanted to use my VPN account. When trying to connect, I got an error 440 Driver Failure. Fixing this issue was quite easy, however you do need to have the Cisco VPN installation files.

Goto start, type "add remove"  and select Add or Remove programs

From the list of installed applications, scroll to the Cisco VPN item and press repair.

If your original installation files are still in the same folder, all will go well, otherwise you will get a popup screen asking for the installation files. Luckily I have my backup and it was easy to find them :)
It works like a charm now!
