It would help if you could be more specific about the operating system and
about your definition of 'molecule modeling'. If she only wants to display
3D structures of e.g. the proteins from the Brookhaven databank, your best
bet would be RasMol from, which is available for
MSwindows, Mac and Unix systems. Also look around on,
or ask again if she needs a structure editor or geometry optimization/quantum 
chemistry software.
