The following changes have been made:
1) Remote control of faculty and staff machines will require the end-user to OK the remote connection. An example is shown below.
2) Open access computers, active classrooms, computer labs can still be remote controlled without user intervention. Typically technicians will perform repairs in these areas while the lab is not in use.
When the Service Desk or a technician requests a remote control session with your machine you will see the following screen.

When a remote session is active you will see the following icon blinking on the bottom of your taskbar.
