VNC or other remote assistance software for windows 7

Hello,
Since free version of Real VNC does not support Windows 7, we are looking for the alternative.
I tried both uVNC and Tight VNC. Tight VNC seemed to be a better replacement for what we need because of the easier configuration and install. Plus when I was using UVNC, I’ve got permissions error message when I tried to send CAD (ctl-alt-del) to the machine that had server installed and have been tested for connection. I spend about 10 min trying to adjust permissions, still could not resolve the issue. Tight VNC on the other hand had no problems.
Now, I was also asked to check Winvnc before we make a switch. I wasn’t able to find enough information to make a decision. I am also having a hard time to locate a manufacturer of WINVNC.
Any suggestions and comments are appreciated.
Thanks
Andrei

I have been using TightVNC for several years and I use it on Win7 as well.  I think it is a great little program.

I use LogMeIn.  The free version allows for full control of the remote PC.  If you want file transfer you would have to pay for the premium version.  It is fully compatible with Windows 7 and UAC prompts.

We started using DameWare Mini remote control about a year ago and we love it. Its not free, but it Supports mutiple monitors and will integrate with AD so finding and connecting is a brease weather using AD names, security accounts, or straight IP. I recomend it. Works with both XP and Windows 7 very well.

Radmin is another good option. It is not a free solution but a very reliable one.
