Not sure if anyone has the answer to this. We have deployed an 802.1x solution and Cisco Secure Services Client to most desktops. ( at present 4.1.2 but I have also tested version 5.x ). We are making a client re-distributable pack - in other words pre-configuring the networks and locking the client down "<clientUIType>preset</clientUIType>". The issue we are having is that the client still has the available option to a user to "disable the client" all together from a menu option. Has anyone found how to remove this option to a user so they can not disable the client. Thanks in advance.

-if fails, repeat enable/disable client.

-if fails again, stop/start the service in Administrative Tools \


--- In some rare situations even after this the client fails to connect.

The only solution left is a reboot...
