I"m close to doing the same. I use TV to help my mother and father-in-law, both over 70 year old, when they have a computer issue or just need my help with something. I use it primarily to access a computer at a small local history museum (non-profit) that is all volunteer run and funded solely by donations. I'm the treasurer (non-paid, as I said, we're all volunteers) and having access to the computer at the museum is a must. Not only due I handle the finances, I also use the museum software to send out newsletters, fundraising letter, manage our contacts and record artifact donations. I've been without acces for a week and the museum is 150 miles away from me. It's been a nightmare. I too only get about 60 seconds per session and have to wait at least 10 minutes between sessions. Literally can't do a thing. I'm looking into alternatives as well. Hoping not to have to pay but will if I have no choice. I think TeamViewer is holding out hoping that we will pay them. I won't simply because they sprung this on us and won't respond. Would like to know what software you chose!
