You best chance would be to contact a web hosting provider. Most Windows Server hosts provide remote access.

Computing is moving away from the local desktop paradigm to ASP like functionality as provided by Googleaps.

If you're fairly literate, you could perhaps create your own using Amazon's S3 and cloud computing.

We have been using Openhost commercially for the last 2 years and can only say great things about them.

That would be a very good option
