If it's not for business use you could try Teamviewer (free for personal use). 've found that quite useful in the past.

Windows itself has remote assistance - not sure how good it is but I know a few people who've used it before and said it's alright for a free tool.

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

There is a business (paid for) licence available for Teamviewer.
If you use the free version in a domain environment it usually picks up on this and auto-disconnects you after a certain length of time (think it's 10 minutes) then won't let you re-connect for another 5-10 minutes.
