VZ access manager acting up after upgrading Storm 1 to 5.0

The VZ Access service (v6.7.3) is acting up since upgrading my Storm to 5.0. 

After about a 1/2 hour or so, it will disable the wireless on the phone. 

VZ Access Manager then locks up, I can close it, but when trying to restart it says that another user is using the software.  In order to get it up and going again, I need to shut down the process tree from the task manager. 


After that I can start up VZ Access manager again, but despite being able to connect to the internet, the GUI never goes past the initializing state.  Right now, while I'm typing this my sys tray icon says not connected.


I looked into upgrading to 7.11, but apparently it doen't work with Storm 1 yet.


What gives?

OS5.0 was released without full support from VZ Access Manager. It's a known compatability issue right now. Smith Mirco, the team that makes VZ Access, is currently working on an updated version of the program. I don't know when it will be released but hopefully it's within the next couple of weeks.
