Need software to log in to my mother inlaws PC

Here is what I got: My mother inlaw just bought a new PC with W7 Home on it. I am slowly teaching her how to orginize all her files and Pics to avoid the mess she had on her old XP system (shortcuts to shortcuts, reapeat files etc) My question is there a free program I can install to log into her system remotly from work or home if she botches something up? She has called several times because she has put a folder somewhere and has trouble finding it again. I would like to get in there and find it, and move it to where she wanted it before. She is learning slowly and is messing up a little here and there, not very tech savy. She just learned last night in one of our lessons she can ask questions in Google and find answers LOL. I have to say I am proud of her though

It will be just like you were sitting next to her.
She should be able to see everything that you do.
