My interest lies in stopping /preventing rather than doing.

-------------------------------------------------------

It is fairly easy to screen scrap a web page.

Question:

If you have a client that is logged into a server using server provided dlls
which reside on the client, can the server operator:

1) screen scrape the client
2) display the client screen as a window on the server terminal
3) remotely manipulate the client in anyway.

If the answer to the above is yes,  what if anything can be done in
WinXP-Pro to stop or prevent it (a book or link would be appreciated)?
