Does she have a Firewall or a realtime malware scanner running. (e.g. Spybot Search and Destroy or Asquared) I came across this last month and the user had incorrectly blocked both these programs from running. Have a look in "Rules", "blocked" or "Permissions" in the programs to see if IExplore is there.

Like Taff says what Firewall is she using.Maybe try with the Firewall turned off and see if it works.
