Hi Soniadavis,

Tightvnc is a remote management tool.  If you didn't install it someone that has provided support or your company may use it to support your system remotely.

If you don't need the program goto Start-> Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Find Tightvnc and right click and select uninstall

If you want to keep the application make sure the firewall is open.

Try the following to resolve.  Windows 7

1. Click on the start menu.
2. Select "Control Panel".
3. Click on "Windows Firewall".
4. In the left pane click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall".
5. Click the "Change Settings" button.
6. Check all 4 boxes on the "Remote Desktop" line.
7. Click "OK" to Save.

Good Luck!
