Have you got the product details for what was sprayed into the computer, some of these cleaners are alcohol based so if left for a while it should evaporate, for how long depends on how much was sprayed inside.
What are the computer details, desktop or laptop, custom built or brand name such as Dell or HP etc + model name or number.

We need to get the products details before making a final recommendation but if it was oil
based then something that evaporates quickly needs to be used, 90% pure alcohol or acetone
for example, it needs to be applied sparingly on a lint free cloth, be sure to check the Ram
any other cards or slots and the PSU for contamination
Edit: You could also consider using a recognised PCB cleaner such as the one at the link;

In any case, engine cleaning compounds are, by their very nature, caustic stuff and not designed to be used on electronics not protected from the elements. She needs to move quickly.
