It's the VPN default configuration. By default, it tries to send everything
through the VPN.
There should be a checkbox somewhere which says "send everything through
the tunnel" or something like that. Try unchecking that.

Some other VPN clients (Cisco, for example) disalow all traffic other than
the VPN for security reasons. You shouldn't surf the net and use a
VPN to a corporate net at the same time, more so with a windows box ;)
