Is there any way to use an Android tablet as a "remote" for a Windows PC?

I'd like to rig something up to let me operate my PC, or even just some applications, remotely via my Nexus tablet. Basically, I just want to be able to mess with iTunes (or another music app) and/or (ideally) manipulate windows explorer so I can open and close movies, games, etc., without having to get out from under my six blankets.

Because it is crazy cold.

yes... i'll try to find the link. You gotta pay for it but it's worth it.

Not free, at least on IOS, but Splashtop Remote has served me well the past couple years.

I use TeamViewer to remote control my desktop from my Nexus 7. Works pretty well.
