Hello, WR-L-ers,
Anyone have a recommendation for a substitute for GoToMyPC?
I've been happily using it for many years to administer my Mom's
computer and to help her out. But with their acquisition by LogMeIn,
they've gone into extreme price gouging mode: an increase from
$59.80/machine to $229.92/machine -- yes, almost 400%. But out of the
goodness of their heart, they're offering a 40% discount to existing
customers, so only $133.92/machine.
I need something that runs in the background on Mom's Windows 10
machine (so that she doesn't have to figure out how to start it, and so
that I don't need her to be present when I want to access it for
managing updates and the like), that I can use from my Windows 10
machine. So I think the regular and logmein are out?
I found a bunch of alternatives on these pages:
[2], and
[3], so lots to choose
Free isn't necessary; I'm happy to pay for software, especially if it
saves me time configuring things and training Mom. I'm just not willing
to fork over $$ to a company that tries to foist such a giant increase
on users, without even a reasonable explanation.
Thanks for your advice,
