I am using windows xp pro; even when I establish a user account, I am still
quite able to shut down the vnc server from the start menu. I have looked
at the os' program access, but I don't find anything that would apply here -
In windows xp, an icon appears in the start menu that I can't seem to get
rid of that allows one to stop running the vnc server.
I'll keep searching, but your suggestions are welcome!
