locally installed applications can not be used remotely [ as in your example of word]

network apps like setting a game to be a game server and host other pcs remote access for community play is an example of a network application where you install a client on the workstation that will access the server based app.

Might look at VNC or Remote desktop.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
