Monitor computer usage with Network LookOut Administrator Professional

Ctrl-Alt-Del

When you remotely control a computer, there will come a time when you need to unlock or log into the system. To do so, you need to use Ctrl-Alt-Del. However, if you just hit the key combination on your keyboard, it will only be executed on your local system. Therefore, when you're in remote control mode, use the shortcut menu (left-click the icon in the upper left hand corner of the window) and choose "Send Ctrl-Alt-Del."

Other than the thumbnail feature that lets you monitor multiple computers at the same time, this looks like just another implementation of VNC.

Some people might think this is a strange question. I did come across some programs that would allow me to do everything Network LookOut can do, as well as turning on computers. This is quite handy if I am to provide remote support to the machines and for some reasons the machines are off. laman
