    I just got a second PC. I use one for design and the other to run a on line radio station. Here is my dilemma, I don't want to have to use another mouse and keyboard to use this other PC. Is there a program out there that will help me work on both PC's using just one keyboard, one mouse and one monitor, so that I don't have to switch back and forth. A added bonus will be that the program will allow me to easily transfer files between the 2 PC's. Both systems run on Windows XP.

    you can just remote from one PC into the other using remote assistance.

    Or use Synergy.

    Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

    Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all. Learn more about how it works.
