The reason why you cannot see the entire Win7 screen on your WinXP monitor is that probably the resolution on the Win7 machine is higher than that on WinXP machine/monitor.
There are basically two ways to resolve this issue:
1. Switch from normal view mode to stretch view mode. The Win7 image will shrink and fit your WinXP monitor. The downside of this method is that scaling will occur and the objects on the screen will look tinier than on the Win 7 monitor or when normal view mode is enabled during remote session. You can change the View mode in connection properties in Viewer.
2. Change the very resolution on the Win7 machine to equal the resolution on the WinXP machine. Unfortunately, Remote Utilities cannot automatically change the resolution for you during a session so this should be done manually by right clicking on the remote screen and selecting Display Settings item in the standard Windows right-click menu. This method will let you see the remote screen "pixel for pixel" on your WinXP screen without resorting to the stretch option. The downside is that you should do that manually and probably also set the resolution back to its original value once the remote session is over.

You do not need to run the Host with a shortcut, it isn't supposed to work that way. When you install the Host with default settings its service should automatically with Windows. If it doesn't, you should figure out why , this knowledge base article can help. You can also manually start and stop the Host service by using shortcuts "Start Host" and "Stop Host" found in the Windows Start menu.
However, when you directly click on rutserv.exe file in the Program Files folder you run the Host in the Agent mode. This behavior is a side effect of the current implementation and we will fix that soon.
