Is remote connection, under accessories a normal thing to find on XP home sp3? Never noticed it before. Some other places say it was only for pro.

Hi -
From memory I think this is on both Home and Pro
I just checked my Pro and it is listed, but my last XP was Home and I think it was listed there also

No problem usually with that, as both users need to activate this together
I have never used it, as I feel it is a bit unsecured, but I believe that many people do use it

There are many more secure ways to connect to another computer to do Remote Repair (I do a bit) but I always use secure programs -
