Does anyone know of any free and hopefully not too bulky applications I could use to remotely access my Windows desktop away from home?

Remote Desktop from Microsoft works pretty good :cool:

Make sure all your accounts in Windows has a password and you turn on Remote Desktop support. If you have a firewall or router make sure you allow/map tcp port 3389.
