I have my desktop PC running Windows 7 and Acer netbook running Windows XP and I want to use its screen as second monitor for my desktop via LAN. Are there any software to do that?

Not sure if this is a exact dupe or not, so am going to answer...

MaxiVista is what you're looking for...cost $40 for a license, though.
