Should be no problem...
download the latest (stable) release of Real VNC. From
http://www.realvnc.com by clicking "download it now".
Select the window version (of course), and install it on
both pc's. As for options I suggest you choose a simple
password as you are protected by a firewall. and I would
install it as a service since the hadling is easier that
way. And you can remove it later if you decide to.
say yes to all defaults, and questions.
Once you got that far...
I'll help you connect from one machine to the other,
and setup and icon to double click so she can connect
with out bothering with all the nitty gritty stuff...
