Microsoft's Remote Desktop software allows the user of a Windows computer on the Internet to connect to and operate another Windows computer that is connected to the Internet. If the connecting user has an account on the destination computer and it is running Remote Desktop Server or Terminal Services, he will be able to control it from anywhere in the world. You can force the immediate restart of a Remote Desktop system by accessing its command prompt.
