    Is there like a VNC server that can run on the Motorola Droid to allow remote access from the PC?

    To be fair to the OP, the little app that is discussed in the thread you linked to is a VERY poor substitue for a true VNC solution, Hook.....

    I tried it, and it was so slow redrawing the screen that it was close to unusable.

    OK Dave....I never tried it. I think there are other ways to do this though because when I searched I found several threads. :)

    Anyone know if there's any faster ways to do this? This solution works but very laggy

    I am not very techie or anything.. and this might be a stupid question...

    But why do people even want to control their Droids from their PC?

    I am lost of this one....

    I would love to use this because while sitting in front of a computer at work/home/ with nothing to do, I'm usually texting a hell of a lot. I could do things a lot quicker on my phone if I was able to control it from a PC, especially texting. Rather than jumping from phone to PC, phone to PC, etc. can do it all with ease :p

    Hey I'd like to do that too. If you find a good one please do share your thoughts about it and suggest it if it's worth your time! I have lots of other things to try out so I might not get around to it without reading up and trying out the one everyone else likes first.

    That's the opposite of what we're looking for. We're trying to control the phone from the PC, not the PC from the phone.
