Remote Desktop breaks down everytime - getting unusable!

Hi!

i am experiencing this problem for more than 4 years now... everytime if i
connect to my friend over the internet by "remote desktop help" the
connection is not stable!

mostly the connection quits automatically after a few seconds, sometimes it
stays some minutes - whether it is "screen view only" or "take control".
we tried it with remote help file/email and with live messenger remote
invitation.
it ALWAYS connects! i can see how the other desktop screen is coming up on
my window but while coming/building up it closes again mostly.

-> this makes it impossible to work with!
who can help or have an advice?
(do i have to create an extra user account on every PC - and to select this
one in the system remote panel config "select remote users..."?)

yes, we tried other programs meanwhile...
ultraVNC did not connect unfortunately, but teamviewer goes well: easy
connection, very fast reaction AND stable! ...OMG, i am so happy that this
works now!

i wonder that MS is not able to provide such an easy and good solution like
teamviewer?!

Does it matter who makes it?

As more and more things get tacked onto the base operating systems - they
become unweildy and unstable with more and more security holes that have to
be filled by multiple patches and some that never get found (or found too
late) because you have a billion billion lines of code to look over and only
one group of people looking it all over with 100's of different features and
functions that have nothing to do with the base necessities of an operating
system.

In other words - when you get something from a company who focuses on one
thing (like remote desktop software, graphics editing software, etc) - you
are more likely to get a better rendition of that type of software than from
someone who focuses on that type of software and 180 other features
unreleated to it. ;-)

maybe you are right... but then MS should see this too, long time ago. they
should cancel or remove such crap, outdated and bad software. there are many
tools in the windows package that are not necessary!

on the other side, i did not know anything about a software like teamviewer.
if so i would have used this one earlier instead doing troubleshooting with
windows remote.
so where is a help guide from MS for really solving problems on your PC?
(the internal help and solution center is bad joke...)

Try using remote support tools like LogMeIn, Teamviewer, GoToMyPC, RHUB remote support servers etc. for easy remote access of computers.
