I have been using join.me for a while to help some of our clients. It has a 14 day trial and then requires a purchase.  Is there any software out there that is will allow me to do the same (not vnc or rdp).  I need to be able to purchase a corporate license so i can have ANY of the users access it. I know there is something like bomgar but it requires a server.
Please let me know what the options are and links to prices if possible thanks!

systems run xp or windows 7

logmein will do the job.  You can have multiple licenses if for instance you have a help desk and need to be able to keep track of work being done and you can even record the session, do transfer files, restart the pc in safe mode, etc.

many cool features with logmein.

There are five products that I typically recommend when this question comes up. Two you've already mentioned – join.me and LogMeIn. The other two are VNC products (RealVNC and UltraVNC), which you say you don't want. That leaves just one – TeamViewer:

It is free for private, not commercial, use. Here's the pricing:
