Need Remote Access while user can watch

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys
so my issue is, a few people down in VA need my help with their computers.
i can do it all with RDP/hamachi but i want to show them how their software/utilities work.

RDP doesn't allow them to view what i am doing so my question is:

What do i use to remotely access another person's PC AND they can view what i am doing on it?


rep+ for good stuff

I've used logmein.com for several years. Works well, free, simple to set up. You can set options such as screen or keyboard lockout. You get a free 30 day pro version that automatically downgrades to the normal version, which is fully functional minus things like printer sharing, file transfer, etc.

One catch is that the host machine must have a password set for the windows account.

Teamviewer seems to be very popular too but I haven't used it.

Well you can always use teamviewer. I use it all the time for my family and friends.

But there was a way my friend did it with my pc where he took over control via a hack and I saw everything he did and he could control it. I'll find out what he did if I can.

You "can" use remote desktop feature in windows 7, provided your installation of professional or ultimate... home premium can not create a remote desktop connection but can recieve it.
I do not remember how to set it up, but I am sure you can find the nessasary information on microsoft's web site.

i use logmein to open up the network connection and then use RDP (mstsc).
which is basically a standard remote connection, so this doesn't work for me
(is there a feature i am missing from logmein?)

i need the user to see what i am doing on their PC....is that possible through teamviewer?

I don't understand.

That is exactly what logmein.com does. It only blanks their screen if you set the option manually. You open the account on logmein.com's website, they log in and install the app, you run the remote client via your web browser and control their PC.

Teamviewer allows the person to see exactly what you are doing and even control it themselves, and you can switch sides with a click of a button. If you want you can practice it with me lol
