    TightVNC service


    Hello,
    In the "Show hidden icons" found something new "TightVNC service", searched the net and found it is a program and to uninstall it to use the normal way, but it is not on the installed programs list, and not in the 'program files' folder. However found a line in the 'task manager services' and some entries in the registry.
    I do not know where it came from, what is it, and shell I get rid of it ?
    Thanks for answering.
    Thanks
    Motim

    If you want to check and see if you have vnc server running you can use this command in a command promt.

    Code:
    netstat -ano | findstr 5900
    If it is running you see this:

    TightVNC Frequently Asked Questions
    Hello,
    Opened the mentioned link, what I did is this: Searched the whole C (system) folders, wherever I found "TightVNC" and/or "TVNserver" deleted these folders/files, also scanned the registry and cleared every such entry (first exported the item/s), made another whole search and found nothing.
    However they are both listed (disabled) in the "Task manager" as you can see on the attached screenshots, and cannot remove them from there.
    One in the 'services' tab, the other in the 'startup' list.
    How to remove them from there ?
    Answers will be appreciated
    Thanks
    Motim
