Sundeep from Orlando, FL

Sundeep wants to know if GoToMyPC is better than Microsoft's own native remote desktop. Leo says that if you have Windows Pro, remote desktop is free. But Windows remote desktop has a number of significant flaws that represent a serious security issue for users. One magazine even said that "it's time to disconnect Remote Desktop from the internet. You also don't want to use it "bare" on the internet. You need to use a VPN or proxy server. So Leo advises not using Remote Desktop. Use a third-party service like GoToMyPC.
