Hello, Starting on 11/16/2020 I started having trouble using my Pulse Secure VPN client to connect to servers and client workstations i needed to get to. I have Pulse Secure 9.1.6 (2223) I have McAfee Endpoint Security 10.7 and its controlled by Corporate (I cannot disable it) I have no other vpn software currently as i fully removed Cisco Mobility AnyClient and all virtual adapters/regkeys/files associated. I followed the very deep removal instructions to entire remove Pulse Secure even resetting winsock and reinstalled it again. The same thing happens everytime: It will connect 1 time. Work the whole time im on it no issue. Remote into servers and sharedrive with no problem and no lag on the tunnel. When i disconnect it disconnects fine. IF I do an ipconfig? It still says im connected to the Juniper Virtual Adapter. IF I try to disable it in device manager it freezes up manager console. If i try to reconnect to Pulse it sits at "Securing Connection" and never connects If i cancel it stays on"Disconnecting" and never disconnects. My Internet then ceases to work. I have to kill all Pulse Processes and stop the Service for Pulse in order just to get internet working again. Some how the Virtual Adapter is NOT releasing when i disconnect and then it just hangs. I've tried everything i can think of, but the ONLY thing that allows me back onto the VPN through pulse secure is doing a Network Reset (windows 10) and then restarting the computer. It will then again work 1 time and if i disconnect it will repeat the cycle again and be hung in the Juniper Virtual Adapter. So how can i disconnect that adapter without having to reboot that way i can just refresh the process and service and get back online? Or is this not possible. What is locking down that Adapter? is it my AV? Im just not sure at this point. Any help appreciated. Thank you in advance, Chris

I have removed all Cisco VPN entries from this laptop. I have Pulse Secure 9.1.6 (2223) I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. I also have McAfee 10.7 The av is corporate and i have no control over removing or disabling it. Pulse Secure will connect via VPN one time. Works great. If i disconnect and then try to reconnect it sticks on the "securing Connection". There is no way to then get out of this. Try to disconnect it sticks at "disconnecting" then i have to kill the service and processes to even be able to get online. I figured doing this would allow me back in but nope the Virtual Adapter seems to be locked in place. I cannot for the life of me figure out what is locking that virtual adapter in place and will not release? Any one come across this same issue and what is the fix?
