turn off firewall :)
sounds like 1 of 2 things:

1) the modem has already been installed (maybe incorrectly) Check in device manager to see if it is listed

2) If the modem does not have it's own power, eg if it simply has 1 cable to the phone line and 1 to the usb then it may be that computer doesnt have a powerful enough PSU and cant supply power to the modem.

Has she tried it in all USB ports?
