id format personally. takes like 2 hours to backup and format if you dont mess about. it takes more than that to run different checks and stuff. although i suppose youve got to re install the programs after, but id still do it that way

If his girl friend's mother has recently got herself a computer for the first time ever, & doesn't really understand it, maybe her lack of knowledge got it in such a state, how old is she approximately?.
