Fast and easy way to VNC/remote desktop/screenshare with my mother-in-law's computer? I just need to tick off a few settings. I have OS X, she has Windows 7.

I'm trying to assist my mother-in-law with some troubleshooting, and it would be great if I could just take control of her mouse and click where I need to click. I told her I'm going to do some research and call her back in 30 minutes.
I just want to control her computer with mine. We live a few hundred miles apart. She's able to access the internet. My machine runs OS X, and hers is running Windows 7.
Suggestions for an easy way to do this? I tried searching under the VNC tag but nothing there was particularly helpful. Bonus points for simplicity.
