Windows 7: Remote connect software recommendation?

Remote connect software recommendation?

Would anyone be able to suggest software to enable a remote connection to another terminal over the internet/WAN for support. must offer Windows 7 support, XP would be a bonus.
This will be so that a user can remote connect to a computer to be able to operate system files/ install programs and operate simple editing software, also screen recording software.

I've looked at a few but I was wondering if anyone had one that would be most suitable and fit these needs best.
Many thanks for any help

I've had a look at team viewer, however the subscription model is monthly billing, the organization paying wont allow monthly billing, are there any recommended that have a one off payment for purchase?

Many Thanks

I found this on the TeamViewer site for a Business License:
No monthly fees! Pay once, use permanently.

You could ask TeamViewer support if you have any questions about their licenses.

As the OP is in a business environment, this might be important if Chrome is considered.
Preparing your remote desktop

For this tool to work, you'll need to have the Chrome browser and Google's Chrome Remote Desktop extension installed on all PCs that you plan to access, or access another PC from.

It's an old article, so maybe things have changed.
