Have one particular end user who, aside from being heistant to change, like to shop online and open links from her family abroad in e-mails.

As a result the desktop gets a fair amount of spyware/malware. There is a AV/anti-spyware (two levels) on there but apparently nothing is foolproof/100%.

Any suggestions on what to do here for a more permanent solution?

The user should have a link checker installed as well as be using Chrome.  I recommend Web Of Trust (mywot.com) for anything other than Firefox and linkextender for FF.  See my article with recommendations
