Starting native windows GUI app via ssh.

Is it at all possible to start a native windows application(GUI) via ssh 
and have it actually appear on the windows box?

No matter what app I run via ssh (firefox, notepad, etc) the process is 
listed in the task manager, but is nowhere to be found on the screen. If 
X were in use here, I'd just set the DISPLAY variable, but afaik windows 
won't use a DISPLAY.

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
