XP Remotely Control Your Computer

It is often said that a problem shared is a problem halved. Windows XPs Remote Assistance allows someone on a different computer to help you out with your Windows problems, from anywhere in the World! As you watch, control of your mouse and keyboard will be shared with your invited guest. This is a perfectly secure environment and you can cancel the session at any time. In addition to receiving help or tuition, you can also use Remote Assistance to control one of your home PCs from another one. Another benefit of Remote Assistance is that it allows you to run programs on one PC as if you were actually sitting in front of it. For example, you can run Outlook Express on your desktop PC, and access it from your laptop. Windows XP Professional users also have Remote Desktop, which means they can access their PC as if they were sitting in front of it, from anywhere using the Internet.
