Does anyone know if the new Skype version 4 has a Remote Assistance option like Team Viewer?  I've  seen some ad-on programs but can not get them to work. I want to be able to remotely connect to anyone of my contact in skype, without installing any software on there machines.

Skype does not have remote assistance. It would open up a potential vulnerability that is not related to Skype's core purpose.
Any software remote assistance would require some consent by a user on the remote PC. Some remote access companies like logmein.com or gotomypc.com offer remote assistance programs with a monthly fee. Both these simplify the installation process for the remote user considerably. You go to a site which installs software that uninstalls automatically after the session is over.
