I am giving remote desktop access to my computer to someone to get some work done. I want them NOT to copy any files out of my computer. Is there any software to monitor or prevent copying?

If they are skilled and want your data there is not much you can do since you are allowing them a remote session on your PC, there is this software you can use for most people it will work. Remember this does not block all ways data can be moved from your PC to another location on the internet.
Other than that move your data you do not want copied off of that PC to a external hard drive, and be sure it is disconnected from the PC when they remote in.
If you do not trust them, do not allow them to remote in to your PC.
The account that you're setting up on your machine doesn't have to be an admin. Create the account that you want and give specific folder permissions to that user account.
Assuming windows 7:
