i recently came across an issue with giving support to a client of mine
and so i began looking for some remote administration programs. although
i've found quite a few, i have a few issues with programs like these.

1. symantecs pcanywhere (which i would assume to be the most legitimate,
non-malicious) is about $120 for one license! (iirc)
2. i found one called Radmin through a website called
sunbelt-software.com (this company seems trustworthy, i subscribe to
their win2k newsletter which is always nice) and it only costs $35.
however, the problem is that, even though they seem like a company that
would not offer products that are known to be malicious, i'm still
concerned because of it's low cost.
3. there are a few others that are in the same boat as Radmin. low-cost,
which makes me nervous.

i would appreciate any product recommendations, and/or heads up,
experience, etc. with products such as these.

btw, i'd like to spend less than 100 dollars.

thanks a lot.
