Windows 7: How to access files on PC (from a PC on a different network)

How to access files on PC (from a PC on a different network)

Good day. I have a PC running Windows 7 Home Premium at my shop. I want to be able to access the files and folders on my shop PC from my home PC (which is obviously on a different network). Any suggestions on how I could do that would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. As far as I know, logmein allows you to log into the computer, but it takes over the screen, so if someone else at my shop is working on the computer, that would interrupt them. I want to be able to access the files without affecting someone at my shop that is using the PC. Maybe I am missing something about logmein?
