Download ad-aware. It scans then removes any spyware and adware. then do a virus scan on ur pc to loacte and remove any trojans or viruses. Ad-aware is from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

I have the same problem with my brother sometimes. Believe me, even with firewall, virusscanner and antiadware-progs they will find a way to sabotage your PC :) The best thing is education. Show her that she should't visit sites that start pop-ups all over the place (ah yes, get Mozilla against pop-ups!) and that she should ask you before downloading something. If that doesn't help you'll porbably have to set up some passwords :)

If you dont want your sister to do that, the best way is to make it so you need a password for her or anyone to even use the computer, which i highly reccomend when you have a family. Do this by going to: Control panel>User accounts> Then select your account name in "Or pick an account to chenge" youll know what to do next, and also remove all other accounts, and turn of quest account if its on too. Then you will only have one account - yours. with a passwor............. Oh crap, i just realized you have ME... um, try it if you want.. But does ME even have accounts?
