Default Remote Contol

I'm in Korea right now and my family is having virus problems on their computer. I know how to remove the virus but if I were to try and explain it to them they would be lost in the sauce. So my question is, how can i take control of their computer while I am on my computer? I've had it done to me before when I first started messing around with computer and this would make it a lot easier for me to fix their computer.

I use windows vista and they use windows xp.

I believe on the Live Messenger there's a remote assistance tool that you can try. I also just recently helped a friend from France with UltraVNC. You can find out more at http://www.uvnc.com/

I use Windows Vista Ultimate. I will try that logmein thing first. Sorry it took so long to reply to this thread, my free time is few and far between since I am so busy in Korea. Thanks for the help though, I will let ya know if I can get this working.
