First download and run Malwarebytes click here
If that doesn't solve the problem, I suggest a system file scan. Which OS is your sister using?

try system restore in safe mode.[Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.]

If windows messenger works go in there and open MSN home page and see if you can download anything from there.Firefox could be a good idea.

Sorry, go to Start> Run and type sfc /scannow and hit Enter. You will need your XP Disc.
Before that Start in safe mode and scan with any anti malware program you have loaded
