What is remote access?
When a user across a network even a really big public network like the internet uses their computer to access and control another computer, this allows a Technician the ability to repair a computer that he or she is too far away to access normally or it would just be faster and more efficient to remotely in and control it, which gives the remote user nearly all the same ability’s as sitting in front of the machine, some programs that are used to create a secure connection between two computers include Team Viewer, PC Anywhere and VNC.
What is telephone support?
This is when a customer calls by telephone a helpdesk number and talks their problem over with a technician who will respond with some possible causes and solutions that they will instruct the customer on what they need to do step by step instructions to rectify the issues they are having with their computer.

This is for the software on the computers also known as clients to display, add, amend requested information from the database in a multiuser environment, like for example some accounting software requires a database to help fulfil its multi user environment requirements.

There’s a problem with My Computer what should I do?
First and foremost are you going to try to fix it yourself and are you capable?

But if the answers no then you can call on a IT Support company if you believe it’s not hardware failure or PC Repair otherwise might be a better solution.
