"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It sounds like you are talking about either Remote Desktop Services where you can view/take control of another users Remote Desktop session OR you are talking about Offer Remote Assistance where you connect to the computer outside of a Remote Desktop session?

There are also third party applications such as Team Viewer, VNC, etc.

Recommend TeamViewer -- it works great and is free for personal use.

Install the Full version on a system you want to be able to access remotely at any time.

... or if you just need to take control of a system occasionally, have the user download the Quick Support version -- then they just need to run it when they want you to take control of their system.

If this is for a work environment where you are using an Active Directory domain I recommend using the built in programs I mentioned. Especially if you don't want to/are not allowed to introduce third party programs.

If you are not on a domain then Gary and I agree that TeamViewer is a good choice. I have used it to support people around the world and find it very responsive and easy.

The domain tools may require the user to respond to a request to grant you access

TeamViewer has some nice features like being able to set it so that it reconnects after reboot (really handy if you need to remotely boot a system) and be able to take control of an unattended system.

We have SCCM 2012 in our environment.  To get the Remote Desktop Viewer to work on my PC, I did the following:
1.  logged on to a pc or server that had SCCM configuration manager installed w/ Desktop Viewer
2.  browse to the i386 folder in the CM installation path (in my case that was:  c:\program files (x86)\CM\bin\i386\)
3.  copy the 0000049 folder, CMRCViewer.exe & RDpCoreSCCM.dll to a folder on your PC (I put that folder & files in C:\Tools\CMRCViewer)
4. On that PC, launch CMRCViewer.exe with an account that has admin rights on the remote PC

I don't know if this will work with SCCM 2007, but it's worth a shot.

NOTE:  CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't always work on a PC that doesn't have someone already logged on. So, have the user press CNTRL+ALT+DEL for you if needed.
