Hi Geeks to Go!

Haven't been here in awhile, but I'm back lol. This time it's for a neighbor, who unfortunately cannot get to her internet. I'd say about 15% of the time, she can browse fully with an extremely slow speed. However, most of the time her internet page diverges from her homepage of MSN and she gets a warning message similar to the "this page cannot be displayed" message which I think is from Windows that says she has suspected malware, spyware etc. She recently purchased "virus" software called Cyber Defender, however, I have a feeling that it is not what it says it is, and is a rogue anti-spyware that is using scareware tactics.

So here's the plan. I'm in Florida visiting my mom, and will be here until August 29th. All I need to do is get my neighbor to be able to get on the internet freely and then she can visit the website (I bragged all about you guys) and check the logs. Please help me out. Thanks!!
