Remote Desktop Control is comfortable for any kind of user. Even a "newbie" will easily understand basic tasks. Gurus will find many powerful features, such as view only mode or remote system shutdown. The main design consideration of Remote Desktop Control is "as easy as possible for the user".

Remote Desktop Control is so fast and comfortable that you might even forget that you are working on a remote computer! The program allows you to work with different remote computers simultaneously, from anywhere in the world.

O programa eh legal, porém não inova em nada. Recomendo o UltraVNC que tem mais recursos, além de ser free o ano todo! :) BR

So to connect to a second PC, they also have to be running this software?

Has anyone else also noticed that Giveawayoftheday seems to hang or jam their browser. I'm using Firefox 2 and it seems to happen 2 out of 3 times, only this site though, no other sites.

I'm not about to bash these programs, but there is nothing wrong with being negative about a "free" program. They have a right to not like it as long as they have a reason. I am grateful they are offered, but I don't have to sings praises about every single thing free.

The only reason I would complain is that the activation key doesn't work for offline computers, time-limit to activate, and I don't see anyway to restore a program in case of reformatting a computer (which some people do regularly). With these extra stipulations, I feel it is not technically as free as other freeware programs. I'd call it a liberal, fully-functional lifetime* trial. I do understand why they protect their programs from abusive distribution, but it's at the cost of the user, the legal consumer (just as DRM music block pirates, it also limits fair use and makes it harder to use for the legitimate buyer).

I have not had any important uses for many of these programs yet, but I do appreciate them being available. The sad thing is that many programs are free these days, and pay programs have stiff competition. This site is truly a great invention, and I will continue to support further development.

Nice giveaway, but I use LogMeIn.com's application, which is free. Add Hamachi VPN, and you have file exchange/print control, etc...all for free. Thanks, but I pass on this GOTD.

This is good software and it runs great, does what is says. As above however, there is no reason to pay for this due to WinXP Remote Desktop and/or VNC/TightVNC/UltraVNC. If this included the ability to remote control my PC VIA my Razr or Motorola Q then it would be valuable.

Sherry, I live by the rules as anyone in a decent society does. If you read the few lines at the bottom of these comments it does say comment only on the software here, meaning the software that's being given away. Which 23 wasn't doing. I don't appreciate being told to get a life, when actually, because of someone not following the rule, I'm now an invalid, because they were speeding and hit me from behind while I was cycling to work---end result, my back broken in four places.. What did the woman who hit me get; a few extra pounds to pay on her insurance premium.

If you want to comment on other software that you think is better (In your opinion), then do so elsewhere, as... well, say no more.
Thanks for this marvellous site, and I apologise for going off the point to make a point.

Keep up the fantastic givaways. So far most of what I've downloaded, since the day I discovered this site just over a week ago has been useful to really useful.

logmein.com > ALWAYS free for the same features but offers something VNC, XP's Remote Deskop and PCAnywhere don't offer - the ability to connect remotely if the IP address changes! I've been using LogMeIn for a couple of years now and I even find it faster than PCAnywhere.

Great little program. Some might say 'What's wrong with remote access?', which is a fair point. The thing is, I set this up with my Dads PC in under 10 mins, and trust me in this, that's no mean feat as far as my Dad's concerned!
Recommended, and thanks to giveawayoftheday.

Microsoft just released their Remote Desktop software for free for all XP users, including XP Home. This is only needed if you have a version of windows earlier than XP.

Ok, my 2 cents and another warning

VNC clones are free and cross-platform, yes. But they are slow, like a lot slower compared to commercial Windows-only remote controls. That's my personal opinion based on my previous employment with one of the major remote control vendors (not AQUATRA, so no $$ involved in this opinion). The only reason to choose VNC is a small budget, there are many commercial solutions that do the job a lot faster/better and saving on how responsive and fast is your remote control software is imo a bad idea since speed is a primary definition of a good remote control.

Warning to whoever does that: Please do not bother spamming comments with ads or malware URLs, all the comments are premoderated, and noone will see your "visit h_ttp://blogspot.com/hello.html.exe" jokes.
Same applies to "hack/warez" comments.

I agree with #23 and #24-->GET A LIFE! Honest feedback is what they are looking for - but not many developer web sites will just give their software away. It takes some bidding and talking to get them to do it, so #24, quit your own whining and take note that anyone who develops software, as I do, appreciates the feedback - even if someone else calls it whining! I am reluctant to give my software away, but if it increases sales or increases visibility of my product, I am more than happy to do so! THIS IS A PHENOMENAL SITE!

Isn't that just the problem. The more popular a site get's the more populated with whining and whinging consumers who just can't see beyond their own esxperience. Yeah there may be other software out there thats freeware and better. Nice of those who do to mention this, but why always in the negative. not everyone is computer or web literate and would find it hard to find these programs.
Also it does ask that you keep your comments to the software in particular. If your not happy say something like. I've got a better program that's free, or say. hey this is brilliant. But...all these negative comments that seem to have become common over the past few days is really getting annoying.

I know that this is a marketing ploy, but as mentioned a few days ago, it's a damned good one, where all parties win.

Regarding Ken's comment, we do appreciate the free stuff but for several days now a statement has appeared on the main page implying that some really great software is coming, yet for the most part we've been getting stuff that either isn't all that useful or that is essentially the same in functionality as some really great freeware that everybody knows about (everybody that's been looking at the freeware sites, anyway). In this case, there is a program called VNC (and compatible variations such as TightVNC) that is free AND is cross-platform, meaning if you have a Linux box at work and a Windows box at home you can access either one from the other (by the way, if you just want to access a Linux box then a program called NX, or a variant called FreeNX, may be a better choice). Remember that it takes some time to come here each day, read what is offered, decide if we want to go through the hassle of downloading and activating it on that day, etc. so I would think that the developers of this site would appreciate honest feedback about what types of software people like, because too many days in a row of not useful software and people might stop dropping by every day. And one comment I would make is that I'm not really looking for software which is functionally equivalent (at best) to well-known freeware. That doesn't mean that I don't appreciate this service, because I do, but it's just honest feedback.

Use VNC. It is always free. It will also let you connect to/from a PC, Mac or Linux box.

It looks like a good piece of software but it doesn't seem to do much differently than netmeeting or Remote Desktop on XP or later PC's. You could configure it to allow a pc to be remotely controlled from LAN or WAN. for "Arjan": "Host" means the computer you wish to control. "Service Computer" is the one you will be using to control the host. Use netmeeting instead. Set netmeeting on your "Service Computer" to automatically accept calls, then go connect to the "Service Computer" FROM the one you want fixed (i.e. the"Host"). Share the desktop and check "automatically allow/accept requests for control". Then go back to the "service computer" and have a happy fixing to your hearts content.

By the way: the original rating system with 5 stars was much better: you could say: I like it very much (5 stars), or I like it a bit (3 stars), or you didn't like it (1 star). Now you can choose only with positive (hand up) or negative (hand down). I even would prefer a system in which you can rate between 1 and 10, so you get a better view, what the total of meanings say of the software.

UltraVNC has more, and more useful, features than this, and it's always free. I personally see no benefit to using this software.

Desmond:

The download folder comes with a text file, open up the download folder, double click on the text file, it will load up, and it has a (large) code, copy it to clipboard. Load up remote desktop, exit it, and it will say 30 days to register etc: load it up where you can put in the activation code, paste it, select ok, and you're done.

Yes this software can make it faster but I'm not pretty sure what would happen if you use the software to other people who do not have the Remote Desktop Control.

I do not have internet connectivity on my home pc and I cannot install this application on my company's computer due to company policy. How can I enjoy this time-limited software on my home PC?

Cant you give an Activation program that is self-running (that does not require internet connection?).
