VPN Client & Sygate Firewall Problem

I'm using the "Cisco Systems VPN Client Version" for work. Prior to installing the latest Sygate Personal Firewall software, I was able to connect to our server no problem. When I try to connect now, I get the following error message:


Secure VPN Connection terminated by Peer.

Reason 435: Firewall Policy Mismatch.

Connection terminated on.....


When I try to login to the VPN client before my Windows login, it says something about a Firewall being detected...waiting to connect, etc...

I have uninstalled and scrubbed my registry for anything Sygate or Cisco VPN related. Tried everything in the following posts:

Googled as much as I could, yada, yada, yada and am still running into the same message when I reinstall the VPN client and try to connect. IT guy suggested reimaging my laptop, which I *really* don't want to have to do. Don't think we have a support contract with Cisco, otherwise I think he would've suggested that.

Has anybody run into this issue in the past, and if so, did you ever get it resolved without wiping out your OS?
