What I would suggest for someone like your sister, who keeps installing malware, is to make her a standard user on the PC. To do this make a new user account on the computer for her. When you create the account, Windows will ask you if it should be an Admin or Standard user. Choose standard. A Standard user does not have privileges to install additional software. She will be able to use the web browser, any installed apps like Office or whatever, but web sites won't be able to install malware anymore.

Have her use this account from now on. It will be a lot less trouble for her and you.

I would set it up as a child account. If she can't behave like an adult then she would get treated like a 12 year old
