Remote access to my machine. Is it O.K ?

I recently bought a motoring program on DVD's. Part of the sellers blurb, is that he will carry out 'Remote help/istall' if needed.
I have no reason to suspect the seller is anything other than kosha,,,,, but is it a good idea to give a stranger access to my machine ?

Once someone has been into a machine, can he get into it again,,,, without permission ?

Are there any basic Pro's & Con's that I should be aware of ?

thanks

If you don't mind someone trying to get your bank details Etc.I would be a bit wary of anyone trying to access my computer and would not give anyone permission to do so.
