Is there a way to set-up my daughters computer on my home network, where I can have it shared and I can run it from another computer on the network?
Say to run anti-spyware, clean up folders and such?

not sure what you mean exactly, but the best way to do that, on a home network anyway, is good ole VNC.
http://www.realvnc.com or http://www.tightvnc.com
It's free, and from my experience works a hell of alot better than commercial products like PCAnywhere. Setting it up is easy. Other than that, if you have Windows XP, you can set up a remote desktop connection, and install the client on another machine. just log in, and you have almost as much control as you would sitting in front of it. I personally prefer VNC, because its registered as a service, and you can see everything from login to shutdown. plus, if you wanna have some fun with her, you can log in and just start moving the mouse around and typing stuff, and blame it on a "malicious" hacker. just make sure your behind a good firewall and it doesn't hurt to only allow 1 IP address ability to log in.
