When using the remote editing functionality under Microsoft Windows, vimrun.exe annoyingly leaves an open window with the prompt "Hit any key to close this window". To disable this feature, modify in the Vim plugins directory the file netrw.vim as follows:

CommentsEdit

 TO DO 
Probably should delete this tip. It might have been handy in November 2006, however it's a very bad idea to patch tools, particularly netrw which is frequently updated.

Dr.Chip commented:

IMHO, it's much better to submit patches for netrw to me, directly.
Be that as it may, did you try :let g:netrw_silent= 1 in your .vimrc?
