Default [Q] Best app to control Windows desktop from note 3

What is the best app to control a Windows computer from this phone over 4g network and/or wifi? I want to be able to use my phone keyboard and mirror the desktop onto the screen to control mouse functions. I'm on Windows 7

I use TeamViewer - it's free (if you're not a corporation) and it's really easy to set up. I tell all my family to install it so I can fix their problems remotely. But yeah, it should do whatever you want.

AFreeRDP and AndroidVNC, Windows has remote desktop built in so the other paid apps seem a bit of a kludge to do something Windows already provisions for. I run an OpenVPN server on my router that bridges my phone onto my LAN from public WiFi or 4G. Most of the time my computers are running Linux and for that I use terminal emulator with ssh or AFreeRDP+xrdp or AndroidVNC...Linux (Ubuntu GNOME 13.10 in my case) has a lot of nice remote access solutions available and they work well. All free and open source too.

Teamviewer is the free alternative, LogMeIn has been great so far too however I would also look at Splashtop...It has alot of claims but Ive found it to be slightly laggier then Logmein or Teamviewer.
Never Satisfied With Her Findings....
