Nope, no copy there.
I am rerunning a search of all her attached network drives using *tnsnames*. So far it is finding all of the copies we had on our network shares for various installations.

But I'm seeing no indication in tnsping or such as to WHICH file its going for.

Is there something in the "My Documents" directory? I had a client with Windows XP and they had a copy of an old tnsnames.ora file there and Oracle looked there first.

if host name check the local hosts file.
