I have a Windows 7 computer at home. I want to connect remotely to it, but don't want it to logout the current session.

What I want is to be able to log in from 2 places but still only 1 session so I don't need to retype my password every time.

Does anyone know how or if this is possible at all?

Not meaning to imply you are computer illiterate, just that it has some good suggestions – Mokubai Jul 15 '12 at 17:10

as per i know and done, you can make one program that listen to your commands and also shares current screen with you, so you can pass specific commands (ms-dos commands), depending what kind of action you want to take.

i actually made for my uncle, who chkeck what her daughter his doing by sitting in office and, can control access

Yes, it possible. With a Remote Desktop connection.

Update: You can use Real VNC to work from several PC at the same time. (but it's not free)
