So you can access the computer remotely when the firewall and antivirus are off? In that case just add exceptions to the firewall and antivirus(not sure why the anitvirus would prevent you from accessing it, unless it includes a firewall and you shouldn't have 2 firewalls running at the same time) for the tight VNC server.

Also are you accessing the computer over the internet (through a router)? You need to forward ports to the Windows 7 PC.
