This Remote PC Access program allows you to access your home PC when you are away from home. Let's say you are at a friend's house and you want to check on a trade, check your email, or retrieve a file for your friend. From your friend's PC, go to the TeamViewer.com web site, where you can initiate software to log into your PC at home. (Of course, your PC at home must be running.). Your friend's keyboard and mouse are now attached to your PC and you're seeing your PC's screen on your friend's monitor. It also has a file transfer feature to transfer files between computers. (Free for personal use).
