Sounds like she installed spyware. Download and run MalwareBytes AntiMalware from Malwarebytes.org and hopefully it'll take care of it. Then get your grand daughter a shock collar and use it until she understands that free crap on the Internet isn't free.

I can't find spw 2009. If it is anything like Antivirus 2009 or Antivirus 360 (same thing), I used Spybot Search & Destroy followed by Malwarebytes to clean it off.
