    I think you should be able to do that using Windows' Remote Desktop.

    It's very difficult, you can search in YAHOO or GOOGLE to find your answer.

    Download Teamviewer onto both your laptop and your desktop.

    Configure your desktop as a server and your laptop can just connect by entering the id and password you set up on the desktop.

    It is really easy and takes less than ten minutes.

    Download Teamviewer from www.teamviewer.com

    Good luck!

    LogMeIn is the best, online interface, doesn't care about firewalls. Remote desktop would be easier if you are running Windows on both and they are on the same network though, just open the firewall on the desktop computer, and set the IP to a static number like 192.168.1.123.
