    I have been helping an elderly relative (who lives 400 miles away) learn to use and communicate on the PC. I recently learned about "Ammyy Admin software," and figure it could make my teaching and the relative's learning job much, much more simple. It researching the software on the net, there is much said by actual and potential victims about scam efforts that use Ammyy. These victims equate Ammyy to the scam--I've yet to see anything positive said about Ammyy. My thoughts are that the Ammyy may be legit and is only the means by which scammers ply their malicious efforts.

    The enlightenment I seek is :confused:: "Is there anything inherently bad or negative, from a security perspective, in installing and using Ammyy Admin software?"

    There are a lot of good choices. LogMeIn, TeamViewer, and the free VPN's are all remote connection options. As you may know, Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance are built into Windows.

    I would try to use Teamviewer or Logmein free versions. Those are the more common used free remote support software.
