I have looked at several different pages but haven't really found the real answer to remote control in my circumstances.. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit SP1. My son who lives a long way off is running XP.. Is there a program (preferably a freeby as it won't be used very often) that I can see his desktop on my PC and sort out some of his problems.. At present windows explorer keeps giving problems saying that the web site he tries to access is giving problems and it then returns to the home page. There are times when such a program would be useful so that I understand what he is telling me over the phone. Any help gratefully rec'd.

Hello Roger,

I have used "TeamViewer" for exactly the kind of situations you are describing. It is free for private use and is very easy to use:

Same program is also posted on BleepingComputer downloads as the preferred remote viewer -
