Yes, certainly there is a way since I do it all the time. One password is
set under HKLM\SOFTWARE\ORL\WinVNC3\Default and none anywhere else. And to
stop it from happening in the future, do not allow the user to set a
password. Do not have any passwords for VNC under HKEY_USERS at all.
Hope this helps.
