irked

my sister has a dell laptop she uses to just surf/chat on. she isn't really the most computer savvy person. in fact, no one in my family is. so who does she turn to when her computer is "broken?" that's right. me.
ARGH! troubleshooting hell. i fiddle around w/the poor laptop and find that it's been infested with allkindsacrap, i.e. clicking every which link on the internet that gives you all these free software/free "pop-up blocker"/free friend finder/free blablabla and then installs all that sh*t on the poor hard drive. now i can't get rid of some of them and it's crashing the computer. the start button is no longer accessible so i can't turn the computer off properly. it's a mess. ya, like she really needed a "search the web and play slot machines while earning money at home" toolbar on the desktop. crimmony. how to fix this mess!?!!
