Well, gotomypc is innocuous enough.  They're part of Expert City, which at one time or another which was part of CNet.  The only thing I don't care for about CNet is their mega advertising and data collecting, but what big site's not doing that now anyway?

Also, their technical details don't seem accurate to me, especially the "making use of
unused incoming connections and available bandwidth and thereby reducing
any bandwidth resource" part.  However, if I didn't buy products because they didn't work like advertised, I would be a cold dirty homeless person walking everywhere with a large bank account.  

Oh well, when you dig around just a little they seem to be more than willing to let you know that just blocking access to poll.gotomypc.com should put any admin's mind at ease.  

What we can worry about now is this remote control suite....

www.totalrc.net 

The domain info is listed below, but the fact that it was registered with a hotmail account and a post office box makes me leery of even installing this one to find out how to block it...  If anyone's bold enough to do that, it would be greatly appreciated if the info got passed along.  :)
