I know you can administer remote computer in XP Prof, server 2000, but not sure about Media Centre or Vista.
In help and support, type in remote access, do some browsing.
I was thinking of using it for a home network but it was to technical for me.
A goggle search gives heaps of information and CNET Downloads.com have free software to do the job.

It has a free version and a paid version. I use the free version alot!!!
it is a great program you will like it.
Just setup an account with them and add your grandmas computer to your account.(it has to be done on her end)
to do this: You just have to log in from her computer to "logmein" and add her computer to your account once you do that you will be able to access her computer.

Not to the extreme that Cbarnard does, but it is quite easy to set up and use

I use Logmein extensivly!
I have a small computer shop of my own, and I offer remote assistance to many people. It helps keep costs down so much because you don't have to drive. I use other programs also, but log me in is my primary tool for service.
I also have SR citizens in my queue and they are always calling looking for help, answers to the simplest questions. It is so much easier to see what they are talking about and walk them through the answer.
Again congrats, good luck, and thank you for using Geeks to go. We love to help.
