Hi Pete. I've no idea what the answer is, but as your posting has slipped into the black hole of page 2, I'll push it back to the top of the list for you.

Have you checked that the following option "Allow Remote Assistance invitations to be sent from this computer" is ticked?
It is in CONTROL PANEL > REMOTE > Remote Assistance.
If it is ticked then I can't help you but this will bump you back up the list ;0)

If you are running Windows XP it is in START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > REMOTE (under the system properties tab).
