Hello,

I read all the posts in this thread and can't truly find the answer to my problem. So, here is what I am having a problem with. I have a laptop that is running vista home basic and I want to use remote desktop to connect to a home pc that is running xp home. I have looked at both computers and remote desktop is on both but when I go to connect it won't work. I read that you cant use remote desktop from home to home but if that is the case then why is it on both computers? Also, when I go into remote and check the remote tab there is nothing there for me to add users. Can someone tell me what I am missing? Should I upgrade my laptop to Vista business and if I did that would I then be able to use remote desktop to access the home pc that is running xp home? Also, I am not that savvy when it comes to computers so if you could be so kind as to use layman terms :) I would certainly appreciate it!! Thanks in advance! KathyM

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply.

First create System Restore.

Click on the below link and follow the instructions.

If your problem still exists, then you can try other remote access applications like

Cross Loop, Teamviewer, Ammyy Admin etc

Good Luck.
