OK, it has been 24+ hours and still no symptoms. I completed the steps in your last post. Just for good measure I ran a full Malwarebytes scan. It came up with 6 infections:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Database version: v2012.10.15.07

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 NTFS

I know it says "no action taken". That's because I saved a copy of the log before applying the fix. I did run the fix and after a restart, the scan is clear. What I'm thinking my friend did is tried to install Picasa and somehow got a hold of an infected copy. She told me the symptoms started after she installed Picasa. I looked on Picasa's website and the filename for their installer is slightly different from the infected file. I ran the suspected file through Virustotal.com and it came back as infected. Anyway, now it is gone. Is there anything else I need to do? If not, Thank you very much for your time.

No, as the main elements detected by MBAM were orphaned registry entries, and of no great import

You should be good to go now :)
