or you can use these
Putty and Xming
Xming is an X Window Server for Microsoft OS, you can find it here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=156984&package_id=175377

install it, and when you run these app, and "X" icon will appear in you system tray neer the windows clock
then connect with putty and enable X Forwarding in your connection

done that you'll be able to run x applications from putty and see them on your windows desktop.
Some times you migth need to use these command "export DISPLAY=[your IP]:0.0"
