Thanks for the suggestion.
I thought about doing that, but there is still other essential
software that is not 64-bit clean and our entire group needs this
machine back up ASAP since currently we are sitting on our hands
doing nothing till I get it back up. If I had a spare machine
I could potentially spend some time getting this sorted. But
we don't have a spare machine, we don't have any money to buy
one, there is only me to fix it, and I have to get some real
work done.... the usual story.
hmm, so there is no way to run the app's which are not 64bit clean in
32bit mode in your environment?

What about the other 10%? We use VNC because it saves state
for those of my users who work from multiple locations, at home,
at work and some are even based overseas. They don't want to
restart up to 20 windows every time they logon. Remote access
in this form is essential for their productivity.
I hope this is taken as friendly advice to save you work....
