The issue of software to share your desktop with others was raised most recently in this thread on our forum.  Here's a free solution which doesn't require any special software (though note that users can't control your pc only watch it).

Quote
ScreenStream lets others 'watch' your screen on their computers over the network or the internet. It is the modern equivalent of the overhead projector. When you turn on screen sharing others on your network (or even the internet) can view what is on your screen by typing the link (and optional access code) into their internet browser. They can continue to watch your screen until turn off screen sharing.
 
One of the main advantages of ScreenStream is that the viewers do not need to install any special software to view your screen. They just open it directly with their normal internet browser. It is also supports optional streaming audio so others can hear what you are saying.

Unfortunately, Screen Stream does not operate in real time. Viewers cannot watch you point your cursor to specific places on your desktop, and so for teaching remotely (which is what I wanted to use it for) Screen Stream is unsuitable.

Is there any other software like this that does work in real time?
