In a Windows 2003 domain with a Windows 2003 server running terminal services and about 20 remote users, while users are connected remotely, I open task manager and I see the same processes running for all remote users, such as:

Jucheck.exe (Java update)
InCD.exe (external CD on server)
ccApp.exe ?
I started the Java control app and set it to only check for updates on thew 29th of each monht, Right now thee are 15 instances of it running.

with autoruns.exe from sysinternals you can find processes starting with computer-startup or user-logon.

You can create the Folder "Disabled Startup Items" in the start menu of "All Users" profile and then add the shortcut to all executable you don't want to allow. This will prevent these from running when the users login.
