    Trying to use Teamviewer for remote access to my PC. Connection is easy, but without a mouse, it's a painful process to browse and click on links. Am I missing something? Is there some easy way to accomplish this? Thanks!

    You could buy Splashtop as an alternative to Teamviewer.

    The main difference is that Splashtop converts your touch directly to a mouse-click on that position, so that there is no need to move the mouse courser around.

    I use LogMeIn. It's pricy, but works well and uses little data bandwidth when tethered to a cell phone for remote WiFi.

    Splashtop is easy to setup and easy to use. Worth the money.
