    Hello. Recently I fixed my grandma's computer by using TeamViewer. It is a great program, especially since it's free, but I was wondering if there is another free program like it that would allow it to restart the computer, log back in, and reconnect without interaction from the person I'm looking at the computer for, that way they wouldn't have to sit there for possibly hours to log back in and reconnect for me. Thanks.

    In the Teamviewer connections menu there's an option to "setup unattended access".

    Correct. And you also have an option to restart the computer and continue assistance.

    LogMeIn. But it looks like you have found an answer with TeanViewer.

    I was getting ready to suggest looking into Log Me In as well. I don't believe it supports logging back in after a reboot without assistance from the end user though. I could be wrong. Also I do not know the difference between the free, and paid versions without looking on the website myself. I have used it with Webroot, and I had to allow them to reconnect each time. It was extremely painless, and easy though.
