I have been using Logmein for several months. I find it flakey. Sometimes my computers completely disappear from my list and cannot be found without reinstalling Logmein. These are Pro paid subscriptions.

Is there a better and more dependable alternative?

LogMeIn was free for personal use up to the end of January 2014. But no more...

If you have a Google account, you can use Remote Desktop via Google Hangouts.

Others are TeamViewer, Join.me (from LogMeIn - but requires a confirmation at the other end). Here's a link to some more choices : 5 alternatives to LogMeIn Free for remote PC access

I use TeamViewer having dropped LogMeIn since they terminated their FREE service.  Prior to that I found it pretty reliable.

Now I use Teamviewer to support family & friends with their IT issues.

You can install the TeamViewer application and enable the always-on feature in the Preferences so that it opens on Startup and allows external connections.
