    If you're running XP then you could get the remote desktop client for mac. It's free from the Microsoft site. You need to enable remote login in XP before it will work. I'm not sure how secure it is. Personally I wouldn't be too keen on trying but it's your bank account details so your choice...

    Thanks for the note. Found the site on Mactopia but alas, it seems it is only for XP Pro which I don't have. I'm running XP Home on my unit.

    I may be buying Virtual PC 6.1

    Most likely there will be a firewall at work, so that may black you from seeing your PC at home. It also depends on how you PC at home is connected as well.
