    I just tried the changes you recommended at the Stateless Geek website for the OpenVPN client on a vista platform. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    Since I installed the client (without Admin privs), my laptop has crashed (the “blue screen of death”) SIX times in two daze… (!!)

    You might try the openvpn mailing list. Something there might have more specific information. If you can quote the errors codes from the BSOD it will probably help as well. You could even google these error codes – this might give you more insight.
