Windows XP’s Remote Assistant
Tonight my friend, Josh Yonce, and I experimented with Windows XP’s Remote Assistant feature. It provides one the ability to give control of his computer to a trusted friend so that that friend can offer help when needed on the other person’s computer. This feature sure facilitates easy resolution of simple problems because you can see the remote computer’s screen over the network while you are tackling the problem. At the same time there is the ability to communicate in real time on the instant messaging screen.
