I have a corporate VPN installed on one of my Windows XP systems that I'd like to completely uninstall. There are no programs listed in the add/remove programs dialog matching the corporate VPN name or similar.

I can find the VPN being launched from here:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Cm\<Company Name>

I can see the VPN connection under network connections:

Name                          Type                Device Name
Connection Manager
Connection to <Company Name>  Connection Manger   WAM Miniport (PPTP)

Do I just need to delete the connection from Network Connections? And delete the directory? Or?

It sounds like the VPN is using no special software, just the standard built in VPN function of Windows.

Deleting the connection should be all that you need to do.

@Wil - thanks for the confirmation. When I deleted the connection, all the related files where automagically removed as well. Cheers! – Metro Smurf Apr 24 '10 at 16:03
