How do I access my Home Linux Box from my office windows

I would like to be able to access my linux box from my Windows machine here at my office. I am not able tom install new software though on my office machine. Is this possible can I just type a certain address in my browser and connect to my machine. I also want to be able to do this from my girlfriends computer at her house and be able to D/L filesonto her machine. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated...

you could install a SSLVPN on your Home linux box and access it via a web browser..

take a look at sslexplorer for instance..
You can copy files using the web interface.

You could also download putty and run it on your work machine. putty is a stand alone executable and does not require installation. this will give you console access to your Linux machine.

pscp (putty scp client) will allow you to copy files between your machines through the SSH connection.
