Your client is obviously having DNS issues - could be an incorrectly setup NIC/Router or simply that her ISP is not providing DNS. Worst case would be some form of malware - but if her computer works at your premises then more likely its not that.

IP Address Primary DNS:

IP Address Secondery DNS:
