    Have them surf the web with Internet Explorer. I'm sure something will eventually take remote control of their PC :)

    Thank you for answer.

    In the case, their router doesn't support VPN feature and they're using internet gateway from this router.

    Is it possible to remote their pc?

    I've found the answer.
    Someone may would like to know the answer same as me.

    The answer is port forwarding inside the router.

    I was going to suggest something like this as well but then realized that first you would have to get control back from which ever worm or trojan was living on the box in the first place. One could use any of the 10 million OS holes to gain control just like the worms do.

    I've used several VNC flavors... RealVNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, just to name a few.

    The best of those, IMHO, is UltraVNC. Had the fewest problems with that, the installer works great, as does the repeater (for managing multiple PC behind a router)

    File Transfer is still a bit woozy at times, but that's about it. Using "MS Logon" for authentication is a real saver though.

    There is also an option (through the ultravnc.com site) to build an external "quick drop" VNC server that you can send to a client or have them download. It basically just runs when they need it, doesn't require any port-forwarding on the router or configuration by the user. Very handy.

    I live on Symantec's pcAnywhere at work for remote controlling PC's. You can usually pickup a copy on ebay pretty cheap.

    We tend to use http://www.logmein.com (there is a free version available). It does have the benefit that it'll work through firewalls and NAT systems (we've got 4 LogMeIn enabled computers behind a single IP with no firewall configuration needed).
