She'd lose any new bookmarks/emails and such since the most recent image was taken but that's about all.
She has MS Office 2003 installed, plus some games and a Spanish tutoring program. I have not had any virus infections after the first one, but I am running the AVG virus checking program and looking at the results.

Perhaps I might try one of the other "free" virus checking programs being suggested here.
