I have a computer running Windows 7 with two monitors connected to it. I would like to remote connect to a Mac Mini and use both monitors.

Is this possible, or am I stuck with the KVM solution?

A VNC server is included in your Mac OS X system. Here you can find further instructions.

You will then be able to connect using a VNC client on Windows such as ultra VNC

Care to summarize those instructions here? If the link goes down, your answer will become worthless – Ivo Flipse Aug 20 '11 at 12:35
System preferences> Sharing> check the screen sharing combo :p – MaximusPerchus Aug 20 '11 at 12:39
Again, I added a screenshot for you. I don't think this answers the question though, the person asking wants dual monitor support. – slhck Aug 20 '11 at 12:45
You understand that you probably won't get many upvotes if you don't include such information in your answer? I recommend you follow @slhck's advice and read the How to Answer page! – Ivo Flipse Aug 20 '11 at 12:46
@slhck's , @ Ivo Flipse, i'll keep that in mind. concerning the dual monitor issue, considering the client will give you a window you just have to stretch it on your second display to gain dual monitor support. if he wants full os integration it should also work with most vnc clients – MaximusPerchus Aug 20 '11 at 13:14
