Sounds like you have a popup or malware problem.
What security software are you using to prevent virus spyware and malware?

She has Norton.What Anti-Spyware programs does she have,
Run the malwarebytes program and see if it finds any problems.
If using I/Explorer make sure the pop up blocker is switched on.
And just check in add remove to see if she has downloaded Messenger plus.

Agree, run Mbam (free version) from butman's link

Which browser is she using IE8? make sure the popup blocker is turned on in the Tools menu.
