Limiting File, Registry, and other remote access by Techs or anyone else.

SOME OF THE QUESTIONS I HAVE  -- From the Client Perspective -- are:

Question 1:

Beside the following are there any other ways to access a computer remotely:

1) Terminal Services
2) Remote Desktop
3) Remote Access Services (RAS)
4) Net Meeting
5) ???

Question 2:
What are the names of the Dll's, Exe's used to implement each of the above?

Question 3:
What are the Registry entries (HKEY...) that "Enable" each of the above on
the client machine?

Question 4:
What is the best way to disable the above?

Question 5:
Once access has been granted using one of the above methods, what keeps the
Tech (individual) from regaining access to the client at some future date
unknown to the client?
