Does she have Preview Pane turned on in Windows Explorer?  This is the most common cause of this issue.
If so, turn it off as this is actually opening the Excel file she is double-clicking on.
Ideally, she should be opening Excel files by using the chooser within Excel if she wants to continue to keep the Preview Pane in Explorer enabled.
