Sounds like the user downloaded or installed something that contains spyware.  You can test for it using Ad-Aware, a free program that you can run on that machine to detect and remove spyware.  Available from:

Looks like your user may have been accessing streaming video or audio. Streamingcash.com seems to provide a way for streaming media providers to track who is accessing their content, and charge for usage.

The following article explains a bit about streamingcash.com and what it does (from a user's point of view). See the bit headed "Privacy invasion by the click", dated August 3rd, near the bottom:

The following co. seems to run the service:

Looks like a cleanup of the registry would be a good idea.
