UltraVNC is recommended by lots of people. I haven't tried it and have no idea if it will handle a Restart.

With almost any remote control utility, you'll have to login after restarting. You can configure the machine to automatically login to the desktop using

Start, Run, control userpasswords2

This will allow you to reconnect using something like UltraVNC once the login is complete.

I haven't used PC HelpWare, but I keep looking at it. It's probably worth a try. :)

You will have to reconnect after the machine reboots, I don't know of a way around that.
