[IAEP] Small SoaS Disaster

Hi All,
I was playing in "PC Land" yesterday, trying to get a working SoaS Blueberry. Downloaded the live usb maker from the net. Made the stick.  Put it in daughter-in-law's medium-sized hp netbook and tried it.  After we finally got it booted (she insisted it wouldn't work, only Windows would) she pushed some button or clicked some icon and there it was!  
Tried Speak... great... spoke reasonably good Spanish.  Tried paint... beautiful. Checked the Journal... working fine. Checked out TamTam Mini... it froze. Did a force quit.  Started it up again and tried to make another stick with Strawberry. Totally crashed the PC!  

It kept trying to start up, said it was fixing the system software, shut down, started up again...etc over and over and over! Finally, after more than an hour of this, she did a force quit and put it away. 
Is it possible that there is a virus in:

While she has other computers, this is a very bad disaster!  My son, the PC guru says not to worry, "you can't break a PC."  I sort of doubt him.
Any ideas about what could have happened, how to fix it, and how to avoid it next time?
