Make sure her AV is uptodate, download Ad-aware SE, Spybot search and destroy and Microsoft antispyware. They are all free, update them and run those scans.

Then for cearing out old files use ccleaner and for the registry I use regseeker.

make sure in windows explorer, tools, folder options, view you enable show hidden folders. Then in docs and settings,your name,local settings, temp you delete all these files. These can cause a system to slow down.

You've probably done this, but lots of people only clear the temp folder in windows.
