I have XP SP2 and have setup remote assistance with a friend and set them up
as a user and all worked OK I could control their computer, clever eh?
However when I finish I lose my user info and am only able to login with my
friends login, mine is not available, what is going on?
Thanks for any help.

The nature of remote assistance is temporary. It is per session and by
invitation. If you want to be able to log on remotely to your friend's
computer now and then, look into Remote Desktop more closely (available on
XP Pro).
