Please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong area. I am new to this site.

Somebody I know has been exploited and it wanted to install winantispyware2008. The person ended up canceling it and it didn't install. They used (Avast! but it found nothing) SUPERantispyware Free and scanned. There was a trojan and ended up cleaning it out. The person is unsure if there is still viruses on the computer.

I would like to control that persons desktop to fix it easier. But I have a problem I don't know a good safe program that will let me do it. Without the person's computer I am controlling, controlling mine. (I have important files on my computer and I don't want to get the virus spreading to mine.)

I use Windows Vista Home Premium and Ubuntu 8.04 (Dual Boot)

The person that was infected uses Windows XP.
