Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2009

ShowMyPC has released the world’s first hosted Remote Access Service that uses the familiar Microsoft Remote Desktop Program to access Windows PCs from anywhere.

A large number of users use the Microsoft Remote Desktop Program to access their PCs within their home or offices. However, due to network limitations, they are not able to access their PCs from outside of their home or office networks.

Now, ShowMyPC has launched a online service that lets users access their home or office PCs from anywhere in the world. Under the covers, the service uses the familiar Microsoft Remote Desktop program. Once the users subscribe to the online service, they can download a small program which is installed as a “windows service” on their home or office PC. Thereafter, they can access this PC from anywhere in the world from a different computer, using a simple client program (also provided by ShowMyPC).

What sets the service apart from that provided by companies like Webex, GoToMyPC and Logmein is that it uses the built in Microsoft Remote Desktop program, which makes the service blazingly fast. It also enables accessing the remote Printers and Drives as if they were attached to the local PC. Security is provided by the built in Remote Desktop Program’s login and password, and an additional login and password combination that the user can configure, the first time she installs the service.
