    Hello

    I have three PCs networked running windows XP. At present I share files using shared folders but I also wish to use some of the applications that are installed on the other two machines on the network. So is it possible to log into the machine from the one I am logged on.

    I will be grateful for any ideas.

    If the remote PC is XP Pro you can use Windows XP's Remote Desktop Connection.

    Otherwise, many people recommend the free UltraVNC: http://www.uvnc.com/index.html
