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.

Try setting her DNS to use OpenDNS (its free and used by millions around the world) - to do this just make the default DNS servers point at:

IP Address Primary DNS: 208.67.222.222

IP Address Secondery DNS: 208.67.220.220
