Thanks Dude

I have tried Teamviewer on my two computers at home on the same network and it works very well over my network but I see in the tutorial you sent a link to it says:

The only problem I found was Windows 7 does not like letting TeamViewer access to User & Library files,
so I have had to move them to a different folder

On my network I can access the remote computer library files ok but I have file sharing enabled on both computers. So will I have a problem over the internet.

Also it say I can connect without Teamviewer installed on the remote computer but I carnt see how I do that
