Most people who are techy enough to know to go into regedit aren't the ones
who are going to be closing VNC. It's probably the ones who AREN'T as techy
who are going to close VNC. It's "security by obscurity" all over again. 

If you make it difficult enough for people to close the server, most people
aren't going to bother, IMNSHO. :-)

Except that Administrators can just take ownership and override the
permissions you specified. :)
