HOW TO DENY REMOTE DESKTOP ACCESS?

Posted: 02-11-2008, 06:10 PM
I'm not a computer whiz so I had our IT guy from work set up my home network.
Now I have reason to believe he gave himself remote desktop access to my
computer. I found the setttings for remote assistance, but how do I find the
settings for Remote Desktop? I'm using Vista.

I tried this, but do not see an option for not allowing connections. I
disabled the allow assistance button but no other options are there.
