Software for remote desktop control

Q: Software for remote desktop control


Can you suggest a good software (preferably freeware) that I can use to
remote desktop into a clients machine and provide technical help.

This site is great for most people for tech support but there's a lot more of that aren't tech savvy or confident enough to understand some of the responses.

Preferred Solution: Software for remote desktop control

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have been looking at this free remote desktop program at their web site but their instructions on how to use it are pretty weak.

Anyone that has or is using this program to take control of another persons pc for help with their system - I would sure appreciate it if you could give me some info on how to use it.

I have posted this question in this forum area as I have seen postings or answers to postings with regard to this free remote control desktop software.

A:TeamViewer desktop sharing and remote control software info needed

Not sure I can give you anymore information than what the website has to offer. If you can detail what you have tried then maybe we can decipher what you are doing wrong.

Have you tried using Zolved at all. Some people find that easier to use.

I have a Windows 7 network set up and whenever I connect remotely to another computer and lock their input such as their keyboard and mouse, the remote user still has the ability to press ctrl alt del, which then allows them to use their keyboard and mouse. My question is, is it possible to disable the ctrl alt del functionality in Windows 7 so that that Blue security screen does not appear? I have tried lots of remote desktop controlling software which has the option to lock the remote computer input, but they still can press ctrl alt del and unlock their keyboard and mouse. How do I stop this? Thanks!

Best regards,

I need some advice regarding unexpensive remote control software.

I am the typical guy who is always asked to help with computer stuff from family, relatives and friends. Sometimes I also need to guide people over the phone regarding their computer issues. Recently I heard about these remote control programs, which I believed were only available for static IP address connections.

I have helped people through instant messengers, and I was wondering if there is software that can be used to access & control their pc's on yahoo or msn messenger.

Any input would be appreciated

A:Remote control software

Hello oct714

My advice and free (looks complex but really is not)

Go here and get UltraVNC http://majorgeeks.com/UltrVNC_d4143.html

Do full install on your computer but not install as a service.

During 1st run or at end of install you will get an Admin Properties screen, on the left half way down delete out the dots and put in a simple password like govnc or similar that you will easily remember.

When you finish you will have 2 new Icons with the VNC Eyeball. One will be the Server Blue (using the instructions below you as helper will not use this one).

Rt click the Green Viewer and then create Shortcut, once this new Shortcut is made rename it "UltraVNC Viewer Listen" then rt click and chose properties.

Click into Target line. Then add a space and -listen.

It will look like this. "C:\Program Files\UltraVNC\vncviewer.exe" -listen

Dbl click this to run. Goes to system tray at bottom right. If the Firewall or Windows Defender pop up always allow this. Give it permission.

Apply OK!

Have them do the same install on their end. Including the same password.

Once installed have them to Run the Server. It also will load into the system tray.

Once it is loaded to the system on their end, you have them to Rt click the Tray Icon, click Add new Client the click the Host block and enter your IP number. They will be contacting you. Doing it this way avoids router and firewall protections and forwarding on their end.

I am in the process of going self employed and am wanting to offer a remote fix solution. I have used 'Logmein' free edition to control my home pc's for a while and i know they offer a 'Rescue' package which does exactly what i would want it to and more but I don't know of other software which may be cheaper and better.

Hello bleepingcomputer!
I am tech guy of my family as many of us are. My mother and grandmother often call me with problems they are having with their computer. As I am not able to see their computer most of the time when helping them, I have been using remote control software such as logmein.com to be able to provide better 'tech support'. The question I have for you guys concerns how secure these programs are. I have read the security information on the sites but of course they will try and make it sound as good as possible. Do you guys have any thoughts on how secure services like this are?

[I'm not sure if this is the proper section for this question: Moderator, please move if this is the wrong place]

In order to help my computer-phobic internet-phobic mom keep her computer running well, I've decided it might be good to set up some kind of remote desktop control software on her computer.

I need something that will be stable and actually work solidly, also I need to be able to do things lilke run an AV scan sometimes, go in and change certain settings when necessary, also install software that she needs. These are the kinds of things she's intimidated by and just better for someone like me to take care of it for her.

Can anyone recommend something (preferably free) to do this with? It seems like there's lots of different services and programs out there now that do this kind of thing, but I was hoping to get some idea of ones that people have used and that actually work well.

I should mention that I'm in Asia and my mom lives near New York City.

Thanks for any tips.

A:Remote desktop control...?

Hey Billermo,

You can use the Windows Remote Desktop for what you want. It takes some setting up as you want to do it over the internet, but that would work. At work I use either GoToAssist or Remote Desktop. Though, we pay for GoToAssist. That is really all I have ever used or needed to use. Someone else may be able to offer up other products though.

Hope this helps,

I am looking for the best remote control software that works on a budget.

What do you recommend?

I would like most of the following features below. Most important is
that I can provide the most common support features to solve a
person's computer problem remotely, and it works through firewalls
with no client or support person setup. I imagine that means a
web-based solution like webex.com or inquerio.com, but they are too expensive for my

I liked DualDesk's features and price but the trial prooved not to work for a client's firewall I think. That is why I believe web-based is the answer.

Required features (mostly in order of priority)
-remote control client's PC
-multiple chat sessions (two at least)
-file and folder transfer
-Works with Mozilla, Fire Fox, Internet Explorer, Netscape browsers at least
-Works through firewalls (PC or Mac) and NAT Routers with no setup
required on either end
-Does not require Internet Explorer to work or Active-X
-Don't have to reboot remote PC to start client session
-Allows Remote Reboot/Log-On/Off & shutdown
-works on remote PC without Windows Admin rights to create folders and
write to the registry
-small .exe file size to send client

I set up my Vista Home Premium machine to be used with Remote Desktop (via the hack) from my Win7 Machine (Ultimate). I am using my Vista machine as a home server and to stream movies to my TV. I wanted to set up the remote desktop to be able to control what I see on the TV from my Win7 machine-- essentially using my Win7 machine as a remote control for the Vista machine to access Hulu or Netflix etc. However, it seems I can login to the Vista machine as some kind of shadow-user, but not actually control whats happening on-screen.

Is there someway I can get onscreen control of the Vista machine via Remote Desktop?

I am having lots of trouble connecting to my friends IP with the Remote Desktop control program. And his IP address is That is his IP address right there. So I created a new account and stuff like that, and that worked well for me. So I add his IP address in the direct connection tab. And then I click on connect, and it won't connect to his computer at all! Every time I click on connect, it keeps saying Disconnected. And I already port forwarded my ports to my router, but I still had no luck with it. Oh well! So can you explain to me what the problem is? I mean I must be doing something wrong with this.

A:I need some help using the Remote Desktop Control program

If he doesnt want you on his computer thats his business, there are no ways around this.

He probably finds it annoying because everytime you RD onto his machine it logs him out. Only one user can use a machine at one time.

If he wants you on the machine speak to him and get the account set back up, if he doesnt you are out of luck.

I have used Remote Desktop before, but all I ever did with it was use it to watch someone give me a demonstration on how to use a certain program (and it was on XP back then). But the situation I need it for now, is for installing programs on my fathers computer, who somewhat technically challenged. I can access his computer physically, but for convenience sake, if remote desktop can indeed give me direct control of his computer as I've heard, I would much rather do it that way. Could anyone explain to me how to do this? A how-to link would also be appreciated, if you know of any. I'd be extremely grateful for your assistance with this, and thanks in advance. :]

A:How do I use Remote Desktop for direct control via LAN?

Sure, no problem. See this tutorial: Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) - Network

If you're in the same network, and his machine is configured to allow remote desktop connections, all you have to do is start the remote desktop program on your machine, and enter his computer name into the box.

I have been using TeamViewer as a remote-control program for a few years to help friends and friends of friends and never charged anyone for this help; but, Teamviewer is now blocking me from using their program, saying I am using it commercially.

Teamviewer costs $600 per year so I can't afford that for free work.

So now I need a replacement. I need a program that will:

Remain on standby 24/7 so that I can log in at any time at will.
It needs to give me complete control of the remote system just as though I were sitting in front of the remote computer.
It needs to allow me to reboot the system and allow me to log in again after the reboot.
Since I don't charge for this work, it needs to be very low cost or free.
If you have personal first-hand experience with a program that meet these requirements, please tell me about it.

Thought here might be the best to ask this as I cannot remember the full details of how it all worked..

About a year ago I was installing some software onto a server & had some problems so i asked a dealer of mine (business) to help out and somehow he managed to remote desktop my computer simply by me going onto a website he gave me

Does anyone know any more details on what this is etc? I know its very vaigue but thats about as much as i remember as the company has now gone bust i cant contact them to find out what they used but it seemed pretty good as then it saved any software having to be installed on the other computer. Which appeals to the company i now work for as we want to start covering remote desktop support

Last night when I came back to my desk, I found someone remotely controlling my computer.   They had a browser open, were trying to access someone's data at a credit reporting site.  When I started controlling the mouse, the perpertrator tried to shut down the computer (they shut down menu popped up), but I prevented it.  It then looked like s/he disconnected.  I saw a brief flash of a window, maybe something saying "Personal Network" (?).
After that, I tried to track down what was going on.  I ran netstat and saw some suspicious connections to IP addresses in listed under "Chinanet" (from a Whois look up).  The connections were to a process running under services.exe.
I've been running Comodo Firewall for quite a while so I thought that I was protected.  I did download a BitTorrent app a few months ago, and after I installed it, I got the impression that it  was loaded with something bad (but I have no evidence that it was), so  I removed it right away after installing it.
Today, I ran MalwareBytes, it found and removed a bunch of files it categorized as "PUP.Optional.Conduit".   (Based on the online descriptions of that, it doesn't seem like the source of the remote control app.)  After that, I ran HijackThis!, and saw a remnant of the BitTorrent app running as a service, which I then removed it using HijackThis.

my goal is to be able to access and search files on my home machine while i travel with my laptop abroad. i have Apple Remote Desktop 2.2 software, an Apple 15" Laptop and PowerMac Dual 2.5 ghz G5 that i'm trying to link to- both running OS X 10.4.2 (latest updates).

I'm trying to get apple remote desktop (v 2.2) to allow me access to my home machine via the internet. i've got an asante friendlynet router (or an airport extreme - i can use either to set the port - of course machine will be connected directly to 1st config'ed router)- and have cable internet service. as long as i can keep track of my router's assigned ip address, i should be able to do this, correct?

so, i've got my assigned ip, i've allowed remote desktop in my client's system prefs sharing panel, i've tried to assign port 3283 to the ip address of the desired client machine (in the Distributed Servers Setup - Service Ports). > Then with my remote desktop software: added by address, using the ISP given IP Address, Login Name, and password specified in the Remote Client settings- BUT, NO LUCK.

ARD tells me the client is offline while the client machine is connected to internet and functioning. Have I missed something?? Please help.

I would like to run my desktop PC remotely from my laptop. The desktop runs Win 7 Home Premium so does not support the Win 7 Remote Desktop feature. Can someone recommend a 3rd party software package? My laptop runs Win 7 Pro.

Thanks, Bob

Id highly recomend teamviwer.
TeamViewer Download

You download the Full version and they download the quick support version just underneath.
The quick version only allows some one with the full version(you) to access there computer (with the ID and Passwrod of course) and once it closes it leaves nothing behind except the .exe file and (i think) a log.
Neither of which will be easily available,they will have to be looked for.

I have a client who whats to use a remote desktop software, they are not connected to a network so Microsoft's Program I don't think will work. There are several free services out there...
Logmein.com for instance and several monthly fee biased services.
I cannot find any reviews or recommendations so I would be open to your insight.

Thank you

Hi ddonnelly2. I do not understand how you can remotely communicate without a network connection so I'm not sure if this link will be any good to you.

I search a free remote-desktop software to control 2-3 pcs (on Windows).
I need it for personal use only. So I need a maximum of options but I don't need a simple program.
I don't need a tool like teamviewer because it need a password (so a preson is needed to give the password).

You either copy the file to your computer or hopefully you have a mapped network drive to that server where the install file is.

I've been using Gotomypc and Logmein and once in awhile Teamviewer over the years. Gotmypc just doubled their annual price - ack! They did offer me a discount bringing it back down to $20 a month but still.... It's causing me to look at my alternatives.

I've read about Supremo but when I look for user reviews, they seem kind of skimpy. I'd like to hear your experiences with this or other remote desktop software.

I would be connecting mostly with Windows 10 and Windows 7 Pro environments, occasionally Android. I do need to be able to print remotely and transfer files. I also need good security.

Thanks for your input.

Does anybody have any good recommendations for some software that will allow me to actually view other user's screens on my domain and make changes and fix problems on their computer? Many times I have users calling in with problems that could easily be solved over the phone but they lack the technical experience to follow the directions. If I could just remote to their system and see the screen this would be so much easier.

Thanks for your help!

The downloadable Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control provides most of the same functionality as the full Remote Desktop Connection software; however, the Remote Desktop Web Connection is designed to deliver this functionality over the Web. The Web package Setup program installs the downloadable ActiveX control and sample Web page on a server running Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0 or later

System Requirements
This package may be applied to the following:

All Windows 2000 platforms
Windows NTŪ Server 4.0
Windows NT Server 4.0 Enterprise Edition
Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
Important: The Remote Desktop Web Connection download package must be installed on a computer running Internet Information Services (IIS) version 4.0 or later. This dependency applies to the Web server only. Users can download the control and view the Web pages from any supported Web browser (Windows 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer 5.x or higher).
