I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me out. I am looking for a program, preferably free if possible, that will help me log onto my mother's computer remotely to do repairs and software. If there's anyone out there that could give me a good site, or maybe the name of a software program that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
