    If she doesn't want to install anything, her only option is if she has Windows XP..to use Remote Assistance, or if she has XP Pro...enable remote desktop connection (which requires allowing port 3389 to be forwarded through her router)

    Nothing will run in the task bar with these though...other choices require installing something. VNC..which also requires port forwarding on the router. Or other small programs which are quick and easy to install and don't require firewall changes, like logmein, or gotomypc, etc.
