The most secure way would be to set up a good VPN server. Log into the VPN, then use Remote Desktop.

Logmein and TeamViewer are great tools, but I will never run them on my machines permanently. Technically, the companies offering the service can gain control of your machine any time they like. Same thing goes for a hacker who might penetrate their security.

Just about all home and small business routers provide some form of VPN option. Might be worth checking that out, or even looking into software.
