Your remote administrator uses remote tools to diagnose and correct problems on your computer. Remote control greatly reduces the time that is required to resolve computer problems because your administrator can perform many troubleshooting tasks without physically visiting your computer.

Your administrator assigns default settings for remote control on your computer and specifies whether you can modify them.

Remote control settings are accessed through remote control properties and include the following configurable settings:

  • The level of control that your administrator has on your computer

  • Whether your permission is required

  • How you are notified when an administrator controls your computer
