john See other comment. If you self haven't installed it... your pc could be remote controlled, otherwise, you problably know what this is.
Tom This program gives you remote access to your computer. I highly doubt anyone who knows how to install a remote desktop service would wonder what it is.
private remote computing, pc 2 pc desktop access - quick - can be spyware - can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing as the world can access the computers it's installed on, if they guess the password. Block the ports with a router on local lan and it's safe.
