Sounds like the video driver was deleted and Windows is using its default driver. Get her to re-install the drivers for her video adapter.
My screen resolution is showing large icons at 800 by 600 pixels with large icons and windows. I cannot get the default resolution. It has happened after restarting the computer for uinstalling the Kaspersky antivirus

screen resolution arrow wont move everything is huge.
After uninstalling Kaspersky I didn't restart the computer. Then suddenly there was a power cut off and afterwards when I opened the desktop the screen resolution was 600*800 with very large icons and windows.
