Windows 7: Remote Access to Windows 7

Remote Access to Windows 7


I need to work on my home computer from my workplace, but I have privacy issues: I want to be able to work on my own computer but If someone at home sits in the place, I want them to see nothing I'm working on.

Right now (Because I was in a hurry) Im using teamviewer, but as everything is visible, Im resourcing to things like unplug the monitor, or set a resolution higher than the monitor supports, but that is no way of doing things.

I was looking at remote desktop, and even I still don't know If it is my solution, seems like accessing from a place which is not on the local LAN is something of a bother.

So what could I use to work on my computer (1 user) at the same time another user could do stuff and not see each other? I would settle for something that allows me to work while on the other end just stays "locked"

I use Windows remote desktop locally on my home network, and if I connect to a pc it logs off the current user ie only one user at a time. I think you can rule out remote desktop as your solution.
