Here are other, more flexible alternatives (just google 'remote control software' or 'remote desktop software'):

Radmin
Remote Utilities
Anyplace Control
TightVNC
Actually for personal/business use it is still free. It must be licensed for "business use"

It is truly not the best in terms of performance but it is idiot proof and that is often the most important thing for someone trying to fix a users machine.

I use CentraStage and recommend it to you. Not only a possibility to watch what is happening there, but also a possibility to control software and hardware on remote devices and set automatic policies and log events happening in system and so on.
You can read info on it by yourself

One option that some forget is that some of the remote access software programs require someone be on both ends of the computers to make it work. Others will allow you to connect with out someone being at the target computer.
Most are pretty well password controlled. I use logmein and vmc via Hamachi the free vpn.
