I am currently using LogMeIn, mainly to support parents and inlaws computers.  

 

It's coming up for expiry and I really can't justify the high cost for just three computers.  Anyone have suggestions for a more affordable option?  All are Windows 7/10 machines.

I recommend and use Teamviewer. (Free for personal use).  There is always some sort of remote access done by chrome, that also get's recommended.

Teamviewer works well for me





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
