I want to use Terminal Services for the first time on my Network.  I would like to find out as much information as possible so I can get a good grasp on the subject.  I will be running TS in Application Mode.   What's happening is that users will be running Applications in remote locations on the network.  I would like to use VPN but it works to Slow for the users with all the encryption. And yes I do have High Speed Internet.

But When I use Terminal Services at Remote Locations it seems It runs as fast as if I where on the Network locally.  I assume this is because TS has no encrytion?  What should I do?  does TS have good Security from Hackers?  Should I use VPN or TS?  What can I do?

Terminal Services does have encryption available, this (as far as I know) is in place by default, but you can increase it at:

Administrative Tools | Terminal Services Configuration

The right click on "RDC-Tcp" and goto "Properties"

Update the "Encryption Level" accordingly.  The only thing you must ensure is that the clients can support the level of encryption being used...

If you're using "High" encryption and the server supports 128bit, this will be the minimum level of encryption required.  If the clients can't go up to 128bit then they won't be able to connect.

Not usually a problem nowadays as any reasonably recently up-to-date client will support the "High" level encryption.

Do you know what I can do for limiting what people can see on the servers desktop?

You can use the Group Policy to restrict what people can do and see on the server
