Hello everyone. I have a Win7 laptop, my mother has a WinXP desktop. I want to be able to log in to the WinXP PC from Win7 to share files and work on it remotely to run visus scans, fix problems, scan for malware, fix issues, etc...you know the deal. How do i do this without paying for a service? Thanks for the help.

You can use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to Windows XP computer. Make sure you log in on Windows XP remotely with an admin account.

Thank you very much for the help, it works great. Now I understand how this works. The PC is in the same house connected to the same router, so I log in to the machine and use it just as if I were in front of it. That is great. :huh: Thanks for the help, it works great.

You can also access files and folders via the network on any computer connected to the network IF that computer has settings to allow this. WITHOUT being logged in via remote access.
