what does it say when she tries to go on msn?

just a shot in the dark but go on her account and go to windows firewall and click the exceptions tab and add msn as a new program.

She watches viruses? Does she like the way they spread, or the way that they pop up uninvited?

Seriously, teach your sister internet safety and do not try to control her. If she uses the computer, and it isn't yours then she deserves to have just as much access.
