Windows 7: Win 7 and Tight VNC

XP Pro SP3
Win 7 and Tight VNC

I use Tight VNC to astis in managing computers at my school. I use a desktop running XP Pro, SP3.
When I connect to a Win7, 64 bit laptop via Tight VNC 3.9, I must manually refresh the screen to see anything I have done such as click start, close a window, or type commands into the run box. Anyone know of a fix?

I use TightVNC 1.3.10 in the other direction, Win 7 to a XP Pro system and it works well. I just checked and TightVNC 2.0.2 is available. Try that release, see if the problem is fixed.

Small vacuum to fit into all those tight places in our machines?
Are there any good mini vacuums out there with a thin neck to get in those oh-so-hard-to-reach-places inside of our machines? Blowing air only does so much... and really just makes a bigger mess. And ripping the whole computer apart to clean it isnt fun.
