If the Xbox is part of a home network running Windows Media Centre Edition it is possible to browse the internet, but from what I understand the Xbox is simply being fed an image from the Media Centre PC. It would require specific software to do this and there would be evidence of this on the PC.

If the Xbox is not part of a PC network I'm 99.99% certain there is no way of browsing the internet

I had nearly a similar thought, I will check his machine for anything odd. Its XP Home SP2 not media centre.
