Team Viewer vs Show My PC etc

I help my clients - users (often on a once off basis) and need to get into their computers to change some settings.  These users are often not very computer literate.   I currently use Remote View (which is a local South African product), the beaty of Remote View is that I send the users a link, they click on the link, click connect and I can see onto their desktop.  Therefore very easy for the users to use and I have been very happy with this product.  However ..

My problem lies in speed and the clarity of the connection.  I go for a Black and White view which does help, but sometimes I cant read the writing at all and sometimes I hit one key and wait and then hit another key and wait.  Very slow.    I am happy to pay for a good product.  I have found Team Viewer seems to be complicated from the Users side  bearing in mind that I only have to link to them once, I dont want to have to ask them to download something as this does mean extra technical help from our side which is costly time wise.

Any suggestions please, I would really appreciate some help as I need to speed up the connection plus keep it as easy as possible from my clients point of view

Hi Osmoze, many thanks, however Log Me In still requires my client to download a file, unless I have misunderstood and as the client usually only requires a once only help (connection) I was trying to avoid them having to download software.  I was looking for somewhere that there is a web page they can log into or I send them a link.  Or am I aiming too high

Have definely decided on Team Viewer, it is excellent once I understood the concept and that the client doesnt need to download, by far superior to the current product I was using.  Very happy, will now switch to paid version, what do I do about awarding points, I realy appreciate your assistance.

pcHelpWare (based on VNC) works well if you're typically in the same spot (need port opened on router inbound to you) but TeamViewer is an excellent choice.
