    Remote Acess help for my Mothers PC ! Anyone help ?

    Mums got a few problems on her PC, anyone got step by step instructions for me at this end to control her PC so I can fix this ?

    Did this many years ago but but not sure how.... Both are XP PC's

    (Mine is XP Pro and Mims is XP Home if I remeber right) or is their any 3rd party software I can use for this ?

    Thanks

    TeamViewer is fairly easy to setup/use

    I do it via MSN messenger...very easy.

    Open chat window. click 'activites' then 'request remote assistance'

    start >help and support> invite a friend to connect to your computer using remote assistance,

    follow the steps from there

    oh but thats from her end but its pretty easy all she really needs is your email address

    Yep ....that's how all remote software works ....one a client .....the other a server.

    You could do as Rumblefish suggested above and use Messenger ....then 'Ask for Remote Assitance' !

    Both u and ur Mum would have to install and create an account each then add each other to the Buddy List.....then ur Mum can 'Ask for Remote Assistance'.....

    But if she doesn't know much about PC's then i think you'll be struggling a bit !!

    Teamviewer is probably more straight forward to use though so try it 1st !!

    I use ]Crossloop, so simple it really is childs play.
