is there any free or very cheap remote control software available that doesnt need software installed on the remote pc.
I want to be able to just email a user a link that they click on which gives me remote access.
As it can be difficult to talk users through installing software it needs to be easy
logmein reach is perfect but its very expensive

    Your scenario seems fine for Remote Desktop Assistance.

    You have to enable remote assistance in the System Properties Tab and users should use the "Remote Assistance" (XP) "Windows Remote Assistance" (Win7) shortcut.

    As you said Logmein is a perfect solution. But you don't necessary have to use the pay version.
    If you don't need all features of the commercial application you can use, that is a basic version provided by Logmein itself.

    Teamviewer is the best free solution.

    Log Me in installs a nasty service, if it cannot work normally!
