The computer is now with colleague of mine -- not present
physically near myself. However, we are in close contact.
Anyway, some details may be slightly distorted when retyping 
the observed behaviour. 

Firstly, the cvsnt service and cvsntlock service are running.
When trying to start CVSNT Control Panel, the window with the 
following information appears. (It seems that it is not that
easy to capture the bitmap of the window. We tried simple 
Print Screen and also FastStone Capture. But the window 
(the related code) probably somehow block a lot of other
actions, including mouse outside of the window and shortcut
keys (even some communication with the network as Skype 
starts to signal that the user is not present even though
we are speaking each other). So, the transcription of the
window follows:

Title: User account control
Bold text: Windows needs your permission to continue.
Normal text: If you started this action, continue.
             Run a legacy CPL elevated
             Microsoft Windows
Details: "C:\Windows\System32\RunLegacyCPLElevated.exe"
         Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Program Files\CVSNT\CVSNT

Then buttons: [Continue][Cancel]
User account control helps stop unauthorized changes to your computer.

After pressing [Continue] the window disappears 
and nothing happens. The Task Manager does not show
any application related to CVSNT Control Panel.

What should I try next?
