Also check under these two keys: -

for users who already have it set up:

HKCU\Software\ORL\WinVNC3

And for generic setup on future users
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\ORL\WinVNC3

Notice that for the user keys you do not have a finaly subkey of "Default".

-------------------------------------------------------

Finally..FWIW, since I'm across the water where legalities are somewhat different -

This is a fairly common practice in call centers - just like the telephone monitoring.  One of they key differences here is that the
intent is to train and monitor quality, *not* to "catch" employees - and informing employees of the monitoring in this situation
really biases your sample data.

I do buy pretty strongly into the idea that attempting to "spy" is a violation of ethics and using it in a legal sense is not good,
but for specialty support systems, this is IMO a legitimate use of monitoring.
