VNC Service problems

Searched a found a few close to this but not quite.
I'm having a couple of problems with starting the VNC service
1. It dosen't like to run as a service (windows 2000). This is happening on
two of my systems. what happens is that when ran as a service that
automatically starts. windows will report the service as running however
when you try to connect to the service you'll get an error as if it wasnt
running. If you try to stop the serive it will hang at unloading. If you
have it installed as a service and manualy start it works just fine. The
happens even on my laptop which use to run VNC from a autostart service just
fine (on a different install of 2000 however)
2. Either having VNC running as service or just a program it tends to ignore
some settings. Most noticable is that it takes away the wallpaper on
connect or disconnect. This is set not to do this in the program (default
settings) and in the registry.
3. I've found at least on my laptop that I can't bring up the current user
settings when ran as a service (the current users settings is currently
unabaliable) I can do this with the only system that is running it right.
Sorry for this long letter. The things these systems have in common is that
they are running widows 2000 sp4 first had VNC 3.3.7 then switched to vnc
3.3.6. The problem started with 3.3.7 as the first of vnc on the system.
Vnc was uninstalled before it was reinstalled.
