How to disable remote desktop

I'm trying to disable remote desktop in Windows 7. I found several tutorials and videos on you tube, but my computer does not show any of the options other than "enable remote assistance". The box that should be below that is not there. Am I missing something? Please help!

It appears you have of of the home editions of Windows 7. Such editions do not support Remote Desktop as a host so there is nothing to disable.
