Remotely Control A PC With LogMeIn

There are several services that allow you remotely control someone else’s computer. LogMeIn and TeamViewer are among the most popular.

LogMeIn free version is designed and marketed as a way to set up your own computer for remote access, but it can easily be used to set up someone else’s instead. First you set up an account at logmein.com.
