If you need remote assistance use Crossloop click here Far better than the built in remote assistance. Just load it on both machines - works a treat and gets round the firewall problem quite easily.

think it will still be in Windows firewall which is part of Security Centre, I believe.

Is the reason you need remote assistance down to an already infected computer? Perhaps locking you out of Windows Firewall and the Internet as well?
