Sentinel.SYS does appear to be a valid Windows process. I don't know whether you have to have it running, but it doesn't appear to be harmful.

It's made by Rainbow Technologies.

It looks like the software that runs a hardlock dongle: a piece of hardware that is used to prevent software piracy on certain programs. If you don't have anything like or connected to your compuer, you probably don't need it.

Edit: can't get the wiki image to load right.

Probably not. Do you have a dongle for something?

Yeah, that's where I was going after proving it was hardware related I'm still concerned that your wife had two trojans on her PC though. Have you considered putting a firewall on her machine? XP SP2 has a firewall.
