    My dad is getting a laptop, and he is not very technically savvy.

    Is there any piece of software that I could get which could let me control
    his computer over the internet. I am guessing that there would need to be
    security features built in so that no one else could control it.

    I would like to use it to update his virus checker and so on....

    Many thanks.

    You can try using RemotePC (,
    which is very secure since they use 128-bit encryption to encrypt the
    communication between your computer and the remote computer. You can
    easily control your dad's computer through an Internet connection.
    Using your mouse and keyboard, you will be able to access the data on
    the remote computer, work on the applications, transfer files etc. You
    will be able to even perform important operations remotely like
    shutdown, reboot, and so on.
