You mean it's reproducible? And he can uninstall openvpn and get networking again? Bizarre!

Yup, when he uninstalls openvpn the NICs work and the machine doesn't seem slow anymore, but as soon as he installs any openvpn-2.0 version and reboots, the machine is basically useless (due to no network conectivity and GUI-response is slow)

Wild conjecture time: Is it possible that some legitimate firewall or other security software has its hooks into XP's networking in such a way that the addition of the TAP adaptor causes it to break in some way, rendering the rest of your network devices inoperable, either by design (panic mode) or by fault?


With OpenVPN installed, try just removing the TAP adaptor, so we can see if the it's the driver or the software causing this.
