How to enable Remote Desktop in windows 7 BASIC ?

I was following tutorial http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff404238.aspx

It says

To configure remote access, follow these steps:

1. In Control Panel, click System And Security, and then click System.

2. On the System page, click Remote Settings in the left pane. This opens the System Properties dialog box to the Remote tab.

3. To disable Remote Desktop, select Don’t Allow Connections To This Com¬puter, and then click OK.Skip the remaining steps.

4. To enable Remote Desktop, you have two options. You can:

Select Allow Connections From Computers Running Any Version Of Remote Desktop to allow connections from any version of Windows.

Select Allow Connections Only From Computers Running Remote Desktop With Network Level Authentication to allow connections only from Windows 7 or later computers (and computers with secure network authentication).

Windows 7 Basic can't do remote desktop. I think only Professional and Ultimate can do it.

Install VNC.

As others have stated, it's not supported in any of the home versions.

I personally like Teamviewer free for personal use and its easier to install then VNC . The person that you are helping doesnt even need to install it they can just run it. Otherwise you can also install it as a service.

I can control the destop by a Android phone, iPhone, Browser with flash, Linux, Mac, or PC

If you have not to use a RDC, use TeamViewer.Its possible to use for non-commercial using.
