Tools

We appreciate how tight some budgets can be. Having free or low-cost software available is a major help for some, so here are a few for you.

Please note - we do not recommend or endorse these programs, they are simply useful tools we have encountered and have not had problems with. You download them and use them at your own risk.

IST Remote Support tool.
IST has paid for the "server" license of this tool, so you can have the "client" end for free.
When you start this tool, you can "text" us directly. We can also have a "chat" session if you wish. With or without video. Just like Skype-ing.
In addition, with your assistance we can connect to your computer to help with any problems.
(Note - You are always in control- we cannot connect without your help every time. You can close the program at any time and we cannot re-connect without your help again.)

If you have a Mac, use this link instead...
TeamViewer for Mac OS X
