Wow thats allot, all you can do is try, I would defrag the drive as well, if it does work after you have cleaned it, it might be worth turning the system restore off and then back on to flush it so you haven't left anything hidden in there otherwise it you might need a reformat.

Thats what I'd do...just reinstall XP and start over. Then get them some good antivirus and spyware software and tell them to run it once a week.

Before formatting, make sure you can get all her essential drivers if your not using a System Restore CD.

You should just format the hardrive and reinstall the OS,Don't back anything up because it could be a virus...
