I've recently tried to use this but it seems that i cannot send any invitations or recieve any invitation. Can anyone give me a solution?

-Note- When another user invites me it automatically declines it saying i have not installed Remote Assistance.

Are you using a firewall?

If, so what one are you using?

Not a good idea to not be running a firewall. There are many free GOOD options out there for use.

Why is SP2 not an option?

Hehe well i don't like sp2 and i don't need the fixes for it. BigFix works well i think.
Anyways the firewall thingy, i have a firewall on my router already :tazz:

Oh for the remote assistance, i want to help "tweak" my buddy's computer with your tweak guide, it really worked wonders.

P.S. I don't think i need anymore firewall or conflict i think.
