Yes indeed, several different ones (almost one per customer).
In this particular case (Cisco VPN Client), the settings you describe 
are not accessible (or not modifiable).  I believe it is a protection 
for the VPN you are connecting to. After all, I guess you do not want 
someone connecting through VPN to your internal network, and this way 
opening the network to all kinds of external nasties to which the client 
itself is open.
The main issue is that each of these VPN systems installs its own 
modules client-side, which all one way or another install themselves 
either as services or as intermediate modules or drivers somewhere in 
the TCP/IP protocol stack.  And these modules, from different sources, 
are rarely made so that they cooperate nicely with one another.  Each 
one tends to believe it is the only one on the machine, to install 
itself as "automatic start at boot" etc...  Add to this the general 
obscurity of how Windows manages these "network connections" and you're 
in for a mystical experience.
