What version of pcAnywhere are you using? I have used VNC v3 and v4
with pcAnywhere 10.5 on the same Win2000Pro host machine for a long time
with no problems whatsoever, even if logged in with both at once (which
I usually am). I haven't tried the just-released pcAywhere 11.5 yet.
As for uninstalling pcAnywhere...well it's a kinda nasty beast about
that. Simple uninstallation Leaves behind registry entries and stuff.
There's a paper in the Symantec website knowledge base that describes
how to completely erase all traces of pcAnywhere. If you're comfortable
editing the registry, you might try that I suppose.
