I finally figured out what the cause of the problem was. I was left with no option but to re-image my PC again after I could not get Network Connect to start. On re-imaging, Network Connect started working until I decided to begin the process of putting my machine back to where it was - by reinstalling the utlilities tools and other applications that I use very often. As I went along, all was fine until I installed Ethereal and WinPcap. Network Connect simply refused to start after wards, meaning I was back to square one. To make a long story short, I proceeded to uninstall Ethereal and WinPcap and that did the trick! Luckily for this experience, days later I got a few calls from users having problems starting Network Connect, and needless to say, each of the user has at least WinPcap installed on their machine. Their problems were also resolved as soon as they uninstalled WinPcap. Hope that helps.
