If you fancy taking control of your own or even a familes PC then Logmein Free is the daddy! http://www.logmeinfree.com/,
- Enter you email address and a password and click download now.
- Check you email inbox for the activation link and click it to create your new account
- Install the software and this will then run and ask you for a nickname for your PC. This will then appear on the Logmein webpage (https://secure.logmein.com/) under My Computers.
- Click the link to access your PC from any computer in the world.
The beauty of this is you can add tons of PCs for you family, friends etc. The only downside is that it is only a remote control tool and doesn’t support file transfer, remote printing etc. To have this you would look at Logmein Reach or Pro which is available at http://www.logmein.com/ and select products.
If you need simple remote control then forget PC Anywhere and Gotomypc etc and install Logmein Free!
