    Have you tried running WinVNC as any other user (especially
non-administrative ones) and doing the same thing?
    It sounds as though your machine may have a virus or hardware problem.
No application should be able to cause an instant reset of an NT/2K box
unless NT/2K has a bug that allows it, or the installation is in some way

Hi there,

Running a 700 Mhz Athlon with a 3dfx Voodoo 3 display adapter. Lots of disk
space. 128MB memory. Win2k Pro, service pack 2. No known issues with the
hardware configuration.

If I start my machine, start VNC in app mode, wait till the icon appears on
task bar, and then right mouse click on the icon, and Exit, about 2 out of 3
times I get an immediate reboot of my machine. No shutdown - it's as if I
pressed the reset key.

I had thought it was limited to this circumstance, but I just managed to
out my machine after some hours of running when I tried to Exit VNC.

No mention of this in the mailing list that I can find so I thought I'd log
