Windows 7: How to turn off ALL remote access apps & Services

How to turn off ALL remote access apps & Services

Hi,

I was wondering if someone here knew how to turn off ALL remote access applications and services (the ones for poeple to control your desktop, remote assistance, etc). I know Windows 7 calls itself "trying to make tech support easier" but I have very sensitive information on my computer and I don't want my computer sending out undisclosed guest invitations for anybody to use to connect to my computer and access my personal files. I don't even want tech support connecting without my consent.
I don't want remote assistance now, and probably never will. The only thing I want to stay on "remotely" is Windows error reporting.

Hope someone knows how to do this.

Use a good firewall with outbound control and encrypt your drive...

Rightclick "My Computer" then click Properties.
On the lefthand side click Remote Settings.
Next click the Remote tab if it's not open.
Then set it up like the screenshot below.
Unchecking & checking the appropriate places
to cut off all remote access then click Apply OK.
