Wind 7 Pro 64-bit

Hi Mate,

Thanks a practical and simple solution - thank the lord. Everyone else was saying use Remote Desk Top. Then when I said I do not understand they just kept quoting the same thing at me - like a public servant. Sorry I was begining to beleif that the "experts" reall did not understand Remote Desk Top.

I had thought of this, but the PC's are in the same house and on my wi-fi network (after I get the new pc fixed after the local Pc shop fixed it).

So i was hoping not to have to go out into the www then back to use a pc basically sitting in the next room...

Oh well the best solution to-day so thanks.

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
