I would like to run my desktop PC remotely from my laptop. The desktop runs Win 7 Home Premium so does not support the Win 7 Remote Desktop feature. Can someone recommend a 3rd party software package? My laptop runs Win 7 Pro.

Too Many USB Flash Drives to count, Biggest is 64GB !
Eight computers in my home network.
Sixteen computers at my business network.
Linked via TeamViewer !
Lots of old used spare computer parts everywhere!
TeamViewer hands down, been using it over a year now with No Problems
The only issue that i see with teamviewer is that even if the host and client are on the same network, it tunnels everything out to the internet and then back in. So you can end up with much lower performance than something like VNC or RDP.
Since I plan to use remote desktop only on my home network, it sounds like VNC is the best choice. Also, exposing all of my keyboard and screen traffic to the external world makes me a bit uncomfortable.
