Are you using a router at your home? If so, you need to forward the port 3389 to the computer that you want to remote control. If you did set this up before, you should check and see what the Network IP is of the computer you want to connect to, because it could have changed. By network IP, I mean just that, your network IP, not your actual IP address for your connection to the Internet. This address will start with 192.168.x.x

Yes I have checked all that a few times. I am using the correct internal address inside the network and the error that comes up is "can not connect to remote computer" I have the firewall disabled on the computer i am trying to connect to so i can rule that out. And I do have the router forwarding that port also.

Now double-check again that your local IP address hasn't changed and that the TCP port 3389 is forwarded to that IP address in your router. Then go to another computer on your network running XP or Vista and try to connect remotely to it using the computers LOCAL IP ADDRESS, not external IP address.
If it still doesn't work. Then I suggest you reset your router back to factory defaults using the user manual/website support as a guide on how to do this. Once it's reset you will need to find out the computers local IP address again (because it could have changed because of the router reset) and forward the TCP port 3389 to that computer again. Also make sure that your computer doesn't have BOTH Port Forwarding and Port Triggering, because you will need to make an entry in both of those if they both exist.
