We currently use SMS 2003, especially the remote tools feature.  The problem we have run into is, SMS 2003 remote tools will not work with Windows 7.  It appears that SCCM and SCE have replaced SMS?  Do either of these have the same capabilities as far as remote tools go?  I heard at one point one of these would only allow remote assistance which doesnt help if someone is away from their system.

SCCM will work with Windows 7, however it does work a bit different.  If no one is logged into the system, it defaults to using RDP.  If someone is logged into the remote computer, you can attach to their session.
I have no idea about SCE.  You could also go with VNC (free), although the communication won't be encrypted between your PC and the remote one.
