I have used it and fixed a problem on my brother in laws machine.

The biggest draw back was speed. I am 512BB and he was 56k dial up. Whether it was because of this I am unsure but it was a slow and tedious process.

Hi bremner

Thanks for your reply. Regarding the connection speed we are both on 512k broadband, so the speed shouldn't be tredious.

Many thanks

You could use LapLink if you have difficulties with Remote Assistance, but Microsoft did develop XP Pro to be a first class network OS.
