Those are the options if you clicked on the icon for VNC Server in the
System Tray.  Be sure you are clicking on the Task Bar button for the
Viewer's connection.  Alternatively, bring up VNC Viewer, connect to the
system, and right click in the Title Bar for the window.  This should bring
up a number of options, including 'Send Ctl-Alt-Del'.
