PROBLEM:
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?

Thanks
David
