I've just installed FileZilla on Windows 2008 server and everytime I connect remotely to the server, the FileZilla Server Interface window comes up. I do not want this and want to double click on the desktop icon instead when I need it. I cannot find any settings to disable this.

Yes, this can be quite annoying! When you install FileZilla server, it will ask you whether you want the FileZilla Server Instance when you connect and if you have checked this option, then there's no easy setting to turn it off.

However if you're comfortable with editing the registry, there's a way to do it. Here are the steps:

1. Click on Start, then type regedit and press enter. This will take you to the registry editor.
2. Navigate to the following : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run if you're on 64 bit Windows or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run if you're on 32 bit Windows
3. Delete the entry for FileZilla Server Interface

That should do the trick; if you don't see your changes, you can try a reboot.
