If she does not have a floppy, and cannot get into her computer, her harddrive could be damaged, or files on it were damaged or erased.
By reboot disk, do you mean windows cd?
You can download a boot floppy from ww.bootdisk.com which will load DOS, and a repair or reinstall may be possible. Many computers have the windows installation files on the harddrive, typically in a folder called OPTIONS.
running setup from within OPTIONS will reinstall windows.

AOL is notorious software, it can really screw up anybodies system - we recently witnessed a perfectly good win2000 system rendered useless for internet access by aol9.
Check compatability with AOL 7 with windows 95 - you will need system software updates, assuming aol 7 doesn't do this for you - DCOM components.
AOL works by installing a 'virtual' network adapter on your pc - hit and miss with win95 I would have thought.
Use another computer and check with aol first - is my advice ... think about upgrading to Windows 98 Second Edition - more secure for internet access, when patched with necessary updates.
