Remote Access with Dual Monitors Viewable

I have a computer with dual monitors.  I would like to remotely access another computer with dual monitors and view the dual monitors output on the remote system the same as if I were sitting in front of the remote computer.

I currently have remote access via www.LogMeIn.com.  Unfortunately, the best you can do with that service is to view one of the remote monitors at a time (and toggle between the 2 monitors) or view both monitors but shrunk to fit viewing on just one of the local monitors (which is pretty much useless).

Can someone please recommend an alternative to LogMeIn that allows viewing of dual monitors remotely?  Free is obviously better but I'm willing to pay for it too.

Thanks,
Darin

Teamviewer handles multiple monitors really well. I can open each monitor at the same time All in different windows. I can move the windows to  to different monitors.  Drag between monitors, etc.
