Editors' Review

This app is a very handy remote-viewing and operating tool, but it requires ActiveX and an open port. HB ScreenSpy's is an exercise in simplicity--providing you have all the correct tools. Installation takes a few seconds, including setting all options.

To view the home machine you must install an ActiveX component on the remote system. That's easily accomplished the first time you connect to the remote computer. On the log-in screen you choose to either simply view the remote PC or control it. We found controlling the remote system quick and lag-free over a strong network. However, poor connection speeds could seriously slow control. Oddly, simply viewing the remote system seemed more jumpy than controlling it. It's easy to zoom or reduce the remote image so that it doesn't completely cover the control desktop. The remote mouse and keyboard operated normally on the controlled machine.

Finding a port open through a firewall could be difficult for some, but experienced users should find a way around any problems. The program features indicate it is hidden from view, but it does appear in the Windows Process list. The 15-day demo is more than enough time to judge how well HB ScreenSpy will operate your system over your network.
