Use LogMeIn Express to remote control your computers or provide remote Help to users

Users often have the need to log on to their machines remotely when they are not physically present in front of their computers, with machines being online all the time with high speed internet, the lure to connect home from a remote location is even better. In this step by step tutorial we will demonstrate a free remote control utility called LogMeIn Express, using which you can log on to any remote machine by just using a web browser. There are a lot of PC remote control software such as VNC, Symantec PC Anywhere etc but most are either commercial and not free, or they need to install a client on users machine and need tweaking around with firewalls and routers. LogMeIn Express uses LogMeIN's web servers for all of its connection traffic, so there is no firewall or router configuration needed at the users end. Its a great product to provide remote help or technical support to anyone, very easily and without any technical know how
