Happy New Year Everyone!!

     I have been working with VNC in my company and am starting to deploy
it throughout my company.  My strategy is to install as a service,
(Dis)AllowProperties and RemoveWallpaper in the Windows Registry.  Manually
delete the viewers on my user's computers, and remove the shortcuts in the
start menu.  I hope to keep users from hacking into each other's computers,
playing pranks on each other, and basically keep security tight while
allowing me to administer help desk support with one reasonably secure
password.
     The problem I am experiencing is that I am getting mixed results from
my registry entries.  Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.  I
haven't figured out the common factors yet although I am still trying.
(Admittedly, I am not very experienced in registry hacking, but I don't
understand why the entry will work on one attempt and not on the next on
the very same machine.)  My users are running '95, '98, 'NT4.0, and '2000.
Has anyone else been here before?  Any insights that might help?


Have a Good Day,

Michael L.
