Grandma's PC has a virus or malicious adware and I don't have time to look at it.  Can someone recommend a reputable and reasonable solution where she can web-ex or live-meeting to an actual person, share her desktop and get the malware situation straightened out??  She got hit a few months ago and brought the PC of Office Depot and they supposedly fixed the malware and put MacAfee on it.  But things sound jacked again.

Would'nt know who you could get!

You could act as the "middle man" by using Team Viewer remote login. Thats if it would run on the affected machine.

If you get connected and during the cleanup process, the affected machine would have to be rebooted several times, thus on restart, you would have to get your Grandma to initiate the remote connection for you.
