I would like to control another PC remotely over the internet. I have Windows XP home edition and so does the pc I want to control. I need to make changes to drivers in the device manager dialog after transmitting the driver file to the pc. I had lost the VGA driver for the remote Toshiba laptop and think I have a replacement. I lost it by removing it accidentally. The restore system was not active and the rescue disk won't work. I would like to work on the remote pc from time to time and would like remote control software.

http://www.logmein.com  offers a free easy to use service that will work well with XPhome

Another that works well and also allows you to reboot as well as reboot to safe mode and maintain control is GoToAssist (my blog):

There are other options as well. See my web site:
