Backup all your important data and do a fresh install of windows. That is the quickest fix and please tell your friend to update her antivirus.

If the computer is an branded one ask your friend to contact the support for the company.

YOu can also perform an online scan from any of hte antivirus website. like Symantec.com or Mcafee.
