I was just wondering how to control someone else's PC, obviously with them knowing and giving you permission like Chris does, just because a friend has been having some problems?

You can also try out LogMeIn but TeamViewer is also my favorite

I use Logmein in ALOT, as well as ultravnc

(ultravnc more on my local network then remote, as its more of a setup challenge)

logmein, on phone with someone, set a temp pw on account, have them login on MY account, 'add computer'

when done, they log out, i login, change pw, and remote in.

(this is for more permanent usage, than say the built in setups)

A router will block Remote Desktop by default...

It's too much of a hassle to use Remote Desktop if you are a beginner & the computer you want to connect to is behind a router, so I wouldn't even recommend you go that route, unless the computer isn't behind a router..

Nevertheless, there is plenty of information on the net about Remote Desktop, simply use Google.

Windows includes Remote Desktop in the OS.

But you can use TeamViewer and LogMeIn as they are just as good / better.

In your situation, I would probably go for TeamViewr. It is a simple and perfect way to remotely control your friend's computer.
