Is there any way to remote control a Canon Rebel T3i 600D from the computer, for example to take shots like every x lapse or something like? I also need the software to do it, I'm looking for a good software that works.

I dont want do only that, I need a complete control of the camera with PC, so I need the also wich software can I use. Please review it – Leandro Tupone Feb 11 '13 at 22:06
Complete control is different, it was not clear that you needed that. Search for tethered shooting, it should give you answers. For tethered shooting it will have to be camera specific but in general it is preferable to have a generic question since it will have a longer life-span and serve more people. – Itai Feb 11 '13 at 22:16
thats a good advice! thanks! +1 – Leandro Tupone Feb 11 '13 at 23:16
I use EOS Utility software (DVD comes in your camera box). After connecting your camera through USB and enabling live view, you can select the time interval and number of shots in the software. – Kamyar Souri Feb 11 '13 at 23:24

Here is a link to a video series from Canon's Digital Learning Series that teaches about using the bundled software from Canon to shoot tethered to your PC. There is a section on automated interval sequencing.

A free tethering solution which support Nikon and Canon cameras [Disclaimer: I'm the developer]

I've used DSLR remote pro in the past but the price is a bit steep at $175
