Hi hydrive1902,
LogMeIn (www.logmein.com) is fast and has a free version or you can pay for a pro version with more features.
Teamviewer (www.teamviewer.com) is similar and is free for personal use.
Hope this helps,

Jonny

If you open port 3389 on your router to your computer, you can use remote desktop, which is built into any windows machine.

IMHO LogMeIn is the non-plus-ultra
http://www.logmein.com

RealVNC is also a possibility
http://www.realvnc.com/

I believe TeamViewer needs someone at home to accept the connection

As for opening port: if you decide to do so, make sure you open port on your router as well.
As for OS support:
LogMein supports at least windows + MacOs
RealVNC supports at least windows + Linux
