Ok, I'm a novice when it comes to X Box games, but I must ask, are there dangers such as acquiring viruses when in the X Box Live world? It is connected to the net, so what should I be aware of, if anything? My PC, her laptop and the X Box are networked through the same router, so are there any dangers I should be aware of?

Personally, I'd advise you/her to not store any credit card info on Xbox live.
If she wants to buy stuff via Xbox live, let her know she can purchase "points cards" at most any store that sells games and activate them manually to add $$ to her account.

At the very least you should make sure she's using a decent length + complexity for her sign-in password, and educate her about never giving it out/phishing schemes.

Also (especially if she's going to utilize the streaming capabilities,) make sure your home's router is using a decent encryption scheme--like WPA2.
