CrossLoop is a great new method of getting IT help. Or, in this case, my help. Anyone who knows me will know I’m always happy to lend a hand, particularly if it’s on a subject I know about – computers would be one such product.

CrossLoop is a simple program that you download onto your computer. When run, it generates a code for you that uniquely identifies you – you give this number to someone who you need assistance from. Using this, and CrossLoop, they can then remotely sign onto your computer to help you out.

So, the next time you’re stuck, give it a try.
