There are three simple steps to take at home.

I haven't used Team Viewer yet, but I have tried Proxy Networks, LogmeIn and a few others. I prefer Proxy's remote control software because it's so feature rich and easy to use, but I would encourage people to try some free demos and choose for themselves.

Hi Mike,

The great thing about TeamViewer is that you can run it without admin rights. No install is needed for a quick session. Most remote control software requires an install, which requires admin rights.

I've never tried Proxy Networks, but will definitely give it a look. LogMeIn is great as well, I've mentioned it in the past.

Thanks for leaving your thoughts and for visiting.
