I am looking for a better remote desktop utility.
I have used Window's own for some time but it has it's down sides.
So I run 7 all over the computers I have, So I want to be able to run it so the user can use the PC while I remote to them.
I'm not using LogMeIn or TeamViewer as I only use them if I have to.

Have a look into tightvnc.
I use it to control computers around my house, and it works fine :P

You know that TeamViewer can be used for local use as well. It just works over the Local Network and never goes out to the internet. I use it on one of my computers so that I can connect to it from inside and outside of my house since it doesn't have a monitor connected to it.
Otherwise, you could use Remote Assist inside of Windows but that tends to be a lot of works setting up just to get connected where by the time you have it you could have just walked to the computer.
Another way is using a VNC client. I have never found a reason to use it but there are people that do. Some of the clients include: TightVNC, UltraVNC, RealVNC. And so on, I would look into them if that is the way you want to go.
Of course you can connect over the internet. I do help desk for a business which has 20 computers. ive installed teamviewer in each and remote assist any of those comps anywhere i am with obviously an internet connection.
