Install CISCO VPN on Windows 7

I need to format my notebook, since I apply for the public beta tester for the Windows 7. I was thinking, well why dont I try to install Windows 7 temporarily for now. At least to try it out before the Windows 7 appears sometime this year (maybe ???)

How To Install Cisco VPN on Windows 7?

1. Install the latest update from Citrix DNE

2. Reboot
3. Install the TakeOwnership

4. Take Ownership these 2 files using Windows Explorer (right click and then choose take ownership)

5. Delete the following files

6. Install CISCO VPN Client
7. Reboot
8. Windows will auto repair (put your Windows 7 CD just in case)

8. Put your “Profile” to the profile folder of your CISCO VPN
9. Done. You should be able to connect to your Cisco VPN now

Some Question:
Why do I need to take Ownership of the NDIS.sys or NDIS.sys.mui ? Why cant we delete the file directly.
Ans: You could try, you will found that you wont be able to delete without using the take ownership method.

Even Macbook is not safe

For those people that think Mac is safer.
Think again.

Of course PC is not even safer, but at least for this year competition, the Mac lost and manage to be hacked in seconds. Faster than PC.

Conclution: Nothing is safe :). Both PC and Mac are vulnerable for attach.

For those people that think, well the person only manage to take control, not spreading virus.
My argument will be:
If the person could control your machine, he could install a lot of malware or virus. Worst ...He could even read your confidential documents. and capture your keystroke.
