The Remote Desktop Connection software is installed by default on computers running the Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Although this program provides remote access to other computers on a network or over the Internet, you may wish to remove the program from your computer for security reasons. This is a simple task to accomplish, so long as you have Administrative access to the computer.


Step 1

Click "Start" and then open the "Control Panel."
