Can anyone recommend software , free if possible, so that I could access a friends computer and use remote control to use the computer as if I was siting in front of it. Also to copy and transfer files and folders. Does the remote computer have to be turned on to do this? Does the remote computer have to have the software installed as well?

I use TeamView Portable, it's free and simple. Google it and you should be able to find it. It's a very light program, the other PC requires it, just copy and paste the *same version* as you onto their PC, program has to be open also. Your able to transfer files, and you do not have to have an Administrator on their PC. Check it out.
