I'm not sure what running chkdsk would do for me.  I can log on or off or 
restart or shutdown at the keyboard when I am physically there.  ReadlVNC
is indeed running as a service.  That is the way I install it.

I can't get the logout to work either.  

So, what is the next thing I should try.

1. Run chkdsk on your disks.

2. Make sure realVNC is running as a service.

On a side note: I'd suggest you always logout before restart/shutdown.
Frequently there are apps asking for files to be saved, or some app hangs
and you can't log back in through VNC because a shutdown/reboot is in
progress.
