    What does everyone use for VNC`ing into Windows 7 machines?

    We have been using UltraVNC with XP for years and its been perfect. I wouldnt say the same for windows 7. It regularly freezes and crashes when connecting or while connected, it crashes out whenever you log off or switch users.
    It also sometimes LAGGGSS really badly meaning you have to disconnect or click the refresh button to see what your doing

    Has anyone got a better solution to VNC into windows 7 ?

    Skeep VNC Console (Skeep VNC Console) on the DC to role out pre-configured VNC Clients to the machine so I can use Tight / Ultra VNC Viewer to remote straight in.

    UltraVNC is on every machine as a backup to impero.

    We cant put VNC out because of the lack of privacy it causes for staff using the machines (they don't want us Technicians spying on them!). They don't like the fact that we could just view a screen without their knowledge. :/

    Been a while since ive played with VNC.
    I ran the viewer and it looks like I need to know the name of the machine I want to connect to, is there a management console that will show me all the machines on the network that have it installed?

    This is why I configured VNC to require the user to accept the connection.
