looks like you guys covered just about everything, but just a thought, if you haven't reformated yet

Since your family member was downloading something when this occured, and since you have a download assistant (Fresh Download) I woudl be mighty tempted to point the blame at it

Download managers like this intercept mouse clicks, and decide if it is a download or a webpage...sounds like the program is corrupted and could be interferring with the browser in general

Well that's something I hadn't thought of. It would be interesting to know if that was truly the culprit. Unfortunatley, I've already reformatted and reinstalled and everything is back to normal now.
Thanks to all for your inut and assistance.

I am intrigued by weird little things like that.
