If your friend is running Windows XP SP2 then both Remote Assistanc and Remote Desktop should be available out of the box.

Click Start | Programs | Remote Assistance and follow instructions.

I've used Crossloop to remotely access my mothers PC over in the UK and it worked brilliantly. A++ would trade again. :)

Remote Desktop will let you map your drives to the remote system..however it could be extremely slow going trying to install something.

I use Zolved all the time.
Works great.  It is based on UltraVNC.

Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop are already there - no installs required. Simply click Start | Programs | Remote Assistance and follow the instructions.

VNC is cool but needs someone to install the program - and sometimes do some port forwarding in their routers/modems. Too "technical". LogMeIn needs installation, but no firewall changes.

No installation required with the Zolved software.  Just a small exe file that each person needs to download and run.
No need to configure firewalls or anything.
