    This is why I rip out so many pieces of windows that I never use, if it isn't there, it can't be a problem for me later. >< Looking forward to nuhi's new software to aid me in that endeavor.

    I'm not familiar with "VNC" but it seems like they are talking about the RDP (remote desktop protocol) services. I suppose it could be something added by OEM's that preforms a similar function even less securely. Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge in the area will chime in. I just update, remove the related files from the image, then block access from within gpedit.msc followed by a sysprep and then 7lite the thing atm.

    locking ports is NOT the solutiuon if you have read carefully - anyhow the article gave a solution:

    5. use another port
    6. run VNC as LUA (run as resticted user while you are on admin, you need to create a windows LUA )

    You don't install VNC server or you uninstall it if you have it on your computer.
