I want to make sure that you are asking for the right thing -- VPN just connects to your PC remotely and gives you access to the network resources. It does not let you control the computer remotely. To do that, you actully want Remote Desktop (if you have a Pro or Ultimate version of Windows 7), or VNC for the home versions. Remote desktop is by far the best choice, but if your version of Windows doesn't support it, I suggest LogMeIn (www.logmein.com) for the VNC. It's free and very user friendly. They have an app called LogMeIn Ignition in the app store.

I do this kind of thing all the time.  There are several possibilities as others have already pointed out.

Logmein is a great way to do this and the app for the client machine is free, although the iPad app does cost a fair amount.

If you have VNC installed on your Windows 7 machine, you can VPN into your network using the built in VPN on the iPad and then use a free VNC app to connect to your desktop.

You can also get an RDP app and if your firewall allows it connect to either your desktop or to some terminal server on the network and then VNC to your desktop.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you really should use Remote Desktop (RDP), but there is some configuration involved on your end -- you will need to know the IP address of your home system to be able to conncet to it (and if your house has dynamic IP, you'll need to set up a DynDNS accaount). You will also need to forward port 3389 on your router to your computer. It's a bit more complicated than LogMeIn, but the speed and quality of the connection is better. There are a bunch of RDP apps for the iPad in the app store.

But if you don't feel like setting all that up, definitely get LogMeIn.
