I do alot of computer support and have customers asking about logging into their computers from my office and fixing their problems.  What kind of software should I use?  I just have regular DSL that suites me fine.  I have seen programs that people install on their computers(off the web) then tech support has access to their computer.   I would like something like that.  I would like to make sure that we are all secure when doing this.

Any ideas or suggestions would be fine.
Thanks
Paul
