Windows Advanced Settings

Having a bit of an issue with VNC advanced settings. My client wants to
disable his users ability to "right click" the icon in the system tray
to make changes like changing the password or altogether stopping VNC
from running. I went through the documentation and found this:
Extra options have been added to WinVNC for use primarily by system
administrators, to tailor the server's behaviour to meet their
particular needs. The options are DWORD values which can be set in
the system registry, and tools such as the Windows Policy Editor can be
used to apply these settings across a large number of machines.WinVNC
will currently look for settings in the following places:
Local machine-specific settings. Options specified here are not
Local default user settings. Location:
Local per-user settings. These override the local default user
settings. If there is no current user, the username SYSTEM will be
Global per-user settings. These are only read if AllowProperties has
not been set to zero (see below) Location:
If this is set to zero, the user is not allowed to view the properties
dialog and hence cannot change any settings, including the password.
Note that this stops all global per-user settings. A valid password
must therefore be in force before using this setting, generally in the
local default-user setting. Local per-user setting.
Problem is that the registry settings do not have the WinVNC3\username
listed anywhere. Although all client are running Win2K and there are
multiple users (admin and a standard user) neither of the users show
up....so how can I stop users from right clicking the icon in the
system tray and disabling VNC or changing the password?
Any help would be much appreciated on this problem.
Thanks everyone in advance for your reply.
