    Go into control panel > services and look for the remote access server service and stop it. You can do it from a command prompt as well by opening a DOS window and typing

    NET STOP "REMOTE ACCESS SERVER" /Y

    Use the NET START "REMOTE ACCESS SERVER" /Y to start it again

    You have to have the quotation marks around the REMOTE ACCESS SERVER

    Just go into control panel and stop it from the services icon.
