Hi Geekstogo team.

I never use netmeeting or Internet explorer or any of the remote access programs and services that are packaged with my OSXP3. I would like to know if I can safely disable these programs and delete them,and if so, how?

I am referring to Netmeeting, remote assistance, remote desktop etc (all the remote access services) and WindowsLive, MSMessenger.
I never use these programs, I will never use them on this computer, and I had a Trojan infection that was accessing my computer via netmeeting and the remote access. The Trojan has been removed- thanks to help from you guys- and I have disabled all the remote access services in the control panel under administrative tools.
My computer is loading and running fine, I just want to get rid of these programs or permanently block them if possible.

thanks for your help
