Windows has a remote desktop client built into it.. But I'm not sure if I understand your question fully. Are you just wanting to connect to remove PC's?

Dameware or RoyalTS might be of interest to you.

We use Dameware at work; it allows you to watch another computer without kicking the local user off, and you can also control it if necessary.

Banana?

VNC will do it too. By default however it will nuke the background of the host PC (ie the one you are viewing) for less bandwidth over the net - meaning people using it will know you have just popped in.

These settings can be changed however.

There are many software you can use which allow you to block sites you want by category (adult, wazer, games, social sites etc..), computer shuts down on the hours you set so none can use it that hours and many other features. We had discuss it with some friends some months ago but I can't remember name now.. I might come back later with more information.

Use use Remote Administrator, I have found that it is still very fast over broadband connections compared with others. Does not kick users off either, but does make the screen flicker as it starts the mirror display driver.

My only gripe is that it does not have a Mac client.
