"Great when it works!"

April 29, 2010  |  By lsquared157

 |  Version: TeamViewer 4.1.6172

Pros

When it works, you can do everything on the remote computer as if you were sitting right in front of it.

Cons

Since my last upgrade (version 5) Team viewer has been freezing the remote computer often to the point where you cannot even restart the remote computer. This is tending to happen more and more.

"Aswome program with 1 dibilitating problem"

June 01, 2009  |  By danneauxs

 |  Version: TeamViewer 4.1.6172

Pros

Easy to set up, easy to use. Very straight forward. Runs as a windows service so you have access to a pc even at the logon screen. Easily record your session and transfer files.

Cons

does not play nice with winxp non-admin accounts (limited accounts)

Summary

Set this up to help mother-in-law with her new computer. Was able to talk her through the install over the phone and I set up both accounts on my end so it was a snap. Easily admin her computer, update, troubleshoot and show her how to do things or watch her and talk her through the process.
Then, she wanted my niece to use the computer so since she is 10 and therefore devious I set her up a limited/non-admin account. From then on out I had problems. When she was logged in that pc was shown as offline and I had no access what so ever. If I logged on to remote control that pc when she wasn't logged on and I tried to log on to her limited account the screen would go black and I'd have to close my TV session and restart it, then I could "usually" remote control her account. But, if I logged her account of the pc remotely the screen would freeze and I'd have to manually close my session (X) button and even though the computer was running and awaiting logon on the other end her pc would show as offline until a reboot was done. There's been an open ticket on this for a few days and if I get it sorted out I'll repost.
Also, not the programs fault really, more like internet lag (I'm on sat) but it takes some getting used to to double click sometimes. Be patient.
I would recommend this to a friend. It's a great program as long as you're dealing with admin accounts. Like sitting in front of that persons computer.

"SO SIMPLE, YET WITH ALL THE PERKS"

May 26, 2009  |  By Ry777Ry

 |  Version: TeamViewer 4.1.6172

Pros

VERY SIMPLE TO USE, YET HAS ALL OF THE FEATURES AS THE MUCH MORE COMPLICATED PROGRAMS LIKE RADMIN. I JUST ATTACH IT TO AN EMAIL, AND SEND IT TO THE REMOTE USER. THEN, THEY OPEN IT, AND TA-DA ITS READY TO USE. BETTER YET... TEAMVIEWER IS FREE!!!!

Cons

YOU HAVE TO SAVE THIS PROGRAM INTO A .ZIP FILE BEFORE EMAILING... NOT THE PROGRAMS FAULT THOUGH.

ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAMS WILL SOMETIMES PICK IT UP AS BEING A KEY LOGGING VIRUS... AGAIN NOT THE PROGRAM'S FAULT.

READ SUMMARY FOR A BETTER EXPLAINATION

Summary

I NEED SOMETHING TO GET INTO PEOPLE'S PC'S REMOTELY AT TIMES. THIS PROGRAM IS GREAT AT GETTING THE JOB DONE, WHILE SAVING TIME AND GAS MONEY FOR BOTH THE REMOTE USER AND MYSELF. HANDS DOWN, THIS PRODUCT IS COMPARABLE WITH THE PAY PRODUCTS. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE OTHER GUYS, AS LONG AS TEAMVIEWER STAYS FREE.

AS WITH ANY .EXE PROGRAM, MANY EMAIL PROVIDORS WILL NOT ALLOW IT TO BE EMAILED AS-IS, SO I HAVE TO ZIP IT, THEN EMAIL IT AND EVERYTHING IS FINE. NOT THE PROGRAM'S FAULT THOUGH.

SOME ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAMS WILL PICK IT UP AS BEING A KEYLOGGING VIRUS. THIS IS BECAUSE IT TECHNICALLY "IS" SENDING YOUR ACTIONS OVER THE INTERNET. AS WITH "ANY" REMOTE ACCESS SOFTWARE, THERE IS A DEFINITE POSSIBILITY OF IT HAVING ILL-INTENTIONS, BUT THIS PROGRAM SEEMS TO BE LEGIT.
