I have finally got Cisco Connect to reinstall.
I had to go into computer > drive C> Programs > delete Cisco folder.
Then delete Cisco from registry. Start > type in regedit to open registry. Then go to HKey Local Machine > Software and delete Cisco entry from there.
Then I unplugged modem and router, and restarted PC > plug everything back in. Wait for power button to stop flashing
Then press and hold reset button in back of router, ( held for 60 seconds, then unplugged and plugged in again)
Ran Cisco connect again and it worked ! - Now I have my guest feature back!!!
I also upgraded the firmware to .03 before I did the above, but I think my problem was that when I uninstalled Cisco, it left behind the folders, and that is why I couldn't get it to reinstall.
Hope this helps somebody else too.

Score one for Carbonite online Back up!!
I had the exact same problem,cisco connect.exe got a mind of it's own and decided to leave after a Windows update.I was left with no way to access my E1000's settings.Deleting from start/programs and attempting to reinstall gave me the diabolical message,the router was already set up.
I was about to type regedit and delete cisco references to try another reinstall when I thought I'd check my Carbonite back up and see if it was worth what I've been paying.I wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect of reconfiguring 3 computers,a wireless printer and two Kindles all over again.
Found the Cisco folder in the back up,right clicked it and selected restore,everything was as before within 5min.Would have saved me a lot of cursing if I tried the Carbonite first but it runs so seamlessly I forgot it was there.Totally worth having.
